1st IFAC Sustainability Virtual Summit — Asia Pacific

Published date: September 5, 2023

Hosted virtually in conjunction with ASEAN Federation of Accountants, Confederation of Asian and Pacific Accountants, South Asian Federation of Accountants and Jeju Group

September 27-28, 2023

Join IFAC and Asia Pacific-based regional partners for a virtual two-day Sustainability Summit! Following the release of ISSB’s IFRS S1 and IFRS S2 and IAASB’s Exposure Draft on sustainability assurance, this summit is tailor-made to raise awareness and fuel dynamic conversations about the surging demand for and the evolution of high-quality sustainability reporting and its assurance. We’ll delve into the impact of the ISSB’s first two standards and IAASB’s Exposure Draft on sustainability assurance (ISSA 5000).

Day 1 of the Summit (Wednesday September 27, 2023) will focus on the arrival of ISSB’s S1 and S2, with a presentation and a panel discussion among regional stakeholders who are actively developing local mechanisms for requiring sustainability disclosures (I.e., Boards, working groups, standard-setting) and roadmaps to adopt international standards.

Day 2 of the Summit (Thursday September 28, 2023) will focus on raising awareness of the IAASB’s new sustainability assurance standard, ISSA 5000, released as an Exposure Draft on August 2, with presentations from IAASB leadership and IFAC.  The session will also allow participants to hear preliminary, high-level stakeholder views, addressing both policy/advocacy and technical issues.
