The 2023 IFRS Foundation Conference was held in London on 26–27 June 2023 and featured a gathering of over 550 delegates from 60 countries. The conference provided perspectives on financial reporting and sustainability standards and coincided with the launch of the inaugural IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards.

Keynote speakers, including IASB Chair Andreas Barckow and ISSB Chair Emmanuel Faber, shared their insights. Chair Barckow emphasised the role of the IFRS Foundation in fostering investor confidence through clear communication, particularly during uncertain economic times. Chair Faber stressed the need for a unified language that integrates sustainability into economic frameworks. In addition, the CEO of the London Stock Exchange, Julia Hoggett, underlined the critical role of reporting standards in upholding capital market integrity and advocated for sector-specific and proportionate reporting to ensure optimal allocation of resources.

The conference explored the interplay between the IASB and ISSB through sessions led by Linda Mezon-Hutter and Sue Lloyd, Vice-Chairs of the respective boards. Breakout sessions offered deep insights into key IASB projects and the IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards.
