The Trustees of the International Financial Reporting Standards recently published a consultation paper on sustainability reporting to determine whether there is a need for global sustainability standards; whether the IFRS Foundation should play a role; and what the scope of that role could be. This paper was open for public comment with submissions due December 31, 2020. Further to GRI’s discussions with other leading institutes in sustainable finance in Canada and with feedback from our members, GRI submitted the following letter.
