About the seminar
Sustainability disclosures are rapidly becoming more critical on a global scale.

The International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) has issued two draft standards for sustainability-related financial disclosures in March 2022. In Japan, the Sustainability Standards Board of Japan (SSBJ) has been established and Financial Service Agency is considering the disclosure of sustainability information in Securities Reports.

In this seminar, we will welcome Mr. Emmanuel Faber, ISSB Chair, who will give a keynote speech on the ISSB's direction of corporate disclosure and its efforts to set international standards, as well as hold discussions with key stakeholders and leaders in sustainability disclosure in Japan.
