The Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) mandates that businesses seek assurance on their sustainability reporting and empowers the European Commission (EC) to adopt assurance standards. The International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) currently has a public consultation open on its recently proposed sustainability assurance standard. The EU could be the first jurisdiction to embed the IAASB’s proposed new standard—International Standard on Sustainability Assurance (ISSA) 5000—into its regulatory framework, as a response to new EU requirements.
Accountancy Europe and the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) will bring a diverse range of stakeholders together to discuss the regulatory, policy and standard-setting path toward high-quality sustainability assurance and the main matters covered within the IAASB’s proposed standard.
Register now and join us to prepare for high-quality sustainability assurance with the IAASB, the EC, the Committee of European Audit Oversight Bodies (CEAOB), assurance service providers, investors and business community.
Our networking cocktail starts after the event, from 17:00 to 18:00 CEST.
