The ISSB recently convened in its new Beijing office, focusing on feedback from consultations on the IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Taxonomy and agenda priorities.

These insights will guide the ISSB's two-year work plan, with plans to finalize both initiatives in the first half 2024. The week included engagements with key stakeholders, such as the World Resources Institute and the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants, exploring the implementation of ISSB standards in China. ISSB Chair, Emmanuel Faber, highlighted global progress at the China Listed Companies Sustainable Development Conference, emphasizing a global-baseline of sustainability-related financial disclosure. The week culminated in the inaugural Beijing International Sustainability Conference, where leaders underscored the need for concerted action to align with ISSB standards.
