Survey of UK stakeholders views
 
To gather UK stakeholders’ views on the ISSB’s Exposure Drafts, the FRC has developed a short stakeholder survey available here. The deadline to provide comments is 29 May 2022. The data collected by the FRC will inform its response to the ISSB Exposure Drafts.

FAQs
 
The FRC has also produced an updated factsheet to inform UK stakeholders of developments in sustainability standard setting by the IFRS Foundation and International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB). This is a fast moving agenda that has the potential to impact corporate reporting significantly in the future. Originally published in November 2021, this factsheet has been updated to reflect recent developments. The factsheet is available here.
