The global sustainability disclosure landscape is fragmented and in flux. The fast pace of changing regulatory requirements adds uncertainty for businesses already under acute economic pressures. This has resulted in a growing and urgent demand among investors and key stakeholders for an aligned, global set of sustainability reporting standards and disclosures.
