Building on strong global stakeholder support for the proposals in its consultation paper 'Advancing Public Sector Sustainability Reporting', the International Public Sector Accounting Standards Board (IPSASB) has decided to commence the scoping of three potential public sector specific sustainability reporting projects pending securing the resources needed to begin guidance development.

The IPSASB’s immediate action will be to establish a Sustainability Task Force to lead the first critical phase of research and scoping. The Board’s prioritised research topics are:

  • General requirements for disclosure of sustainability-related financial information,
  • Climate-related disclosures, and
  • Natural resources – Non-financial disclosures.
