GFMA Response to the IFRS Foundation Consultation Paper on Sustainability Reporting

If Sustainable Finance is to grow at a rate required to fund the global transition, internationally agreed sustainability reporting standards will be needed to achieve consistent and comparable reporting on ESG matters.
