Sustainability and climate-related financial reporting: ISSB, ASRS and beyond



In recent years, the sustainability and climate-related reporting landscape has significantly shifted, creating new obligations for organisations both globally and locally.

With the introduction of the International Sustainability Standards Board’s IFRS S1 and IFRS S2 (ISSB), and the draft Australian Sustainability Reporting Standards (ASRS), companies are under increasing pressure to respond and act upon the reporting mandates. The standards are asking organisations to consider the impact of their climate-related and sustainability risks and opportunities on their financial performance, both now and in the future. They are designed to create consistency, transparency and accountability for climate-related reporting.

Deloitte and RMIT Online have designed this course to empower your organisation to identify risks, unearth opportunities, and devise strategies that tackle financial and climate sustainability challenges head-on. By providing a solid grasp of ISSB and ASRS and beyond, it lays the groundwork for understanding and navigating evolving sustainability standards.
