Canada’s first proposed Canadian Sustainability Disclosure Standards (CSDS) are out for public comment until June 10, 2024. Exposure Drafts on CSDS 1, General Requirements for Disclosure of Sustainability-related Financial Information, and CSDS 2, Climate-related Disclosures align with the 2023-released IFRS S1 and S2 global baselines, with modifications introduced to align with Canadian-specific needs. Also out for comment is a paper discussing how the CSSB proposes to introduce changes, if required, to IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards for use in Canada. The Board will be offering a variety of ways to take part in the consultation, ensuring a wide range of perspectives are considered before finalizing the proposals.
