In response to the International Sustainability Standards Board's (ISSB) global sustainability disclosure standards, the Canadian Sustainability Standards Board (CSSB) has released key documents for public consultation. This process will shape the Canadian Sustainability Disclosure Standards (CSDS) 1 and 2, aligning with ISSB's IFRS S1 and S21, with proposed modifications specific to Canada. 

As organizations prepare to report on the CSSB disclosures, they can refer to complementary reporting standards as applicable, including:

  • Canada’s Fighting Against Forced Labour and Child Labour in Supply Chains Act
  • The Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) Guideline B-15 – Climate Risk Management
  • The U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) Climate-related Disclosures
  • The European Sustainability Reporting Standard (ESRS) E1 Climate Change

This resource centre can offer timely guidance and resources to help your organization navigate these new standards effectively. 

1 IFRS S1 General Requirements for Disclosure of Sustainability-related Financial Information and IFRS S2 Climate-related Disclosures.
