In 2020, the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) released the CDSB Framework application guidance for climate-related disclosure (Climate Guidance). The release is the first in a series of guides on nature-related financial disclosure, with Water Guidance to follow early next year.

The Climate Guidance is designed to provide additional “how to” assistance to companies to disclose material climate-related information in mainstream corporate reports. The guidance complements the CDSB Framework for reporting environmental and climate change information (CDSB Framework), and aligns with other global standards, recommendations and metrics, such as the Recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Disclosures (TCFD), Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), CDP, and others.

The Climate Guidance, the first one in a series of supplementary guides planned for the users of the CDSB Framework, seeks to address the gap in reporting quality by providing up-to-date guidance focused on the disclosure of material non-financial information in the mainstream report.
