New ISSA 5000 Developments: Engage, Learn, and Share Insights

Aug 29, 2023 | New York, New York | English

The IAASB is holding a range of engaging webinars and events to enhance understanding of the newly proposed International Standard on Sustainability Assurance (ISSA) 5000, General Requirements for Sustainability Assurance Engagements—and encourage participation in the public consultation.

1. Amplified Engagement through Stakeholder Survey: Recognizing the diverse perspectives and levels of expertise within our stakeholder community, an alternative avenue for feedback has been developed. In addition to the comprehensive Explanatory Memorandum and Response Template, the IAASB has created a stakeholder survey. This user-friendly tool allows the IAASB to obtain the views of stakeholders who may not ordinarily respond to IAASB consultations, including preparers of sustainability information, those with the oversight of its preparation, investors and other users of the sustainability information, sustainability reporting standard setters and members of the academic community. Survey responses will be aggregated and analyzed in conjunction with other feedback received.

2. Webinars for Enhanced Understanding: Learn more about ISSA 5000 at these dedicated IAASB webinars for practitioners and regulators, offered at two different times to allow for global participation.

3. Empowering Global Exchange at Notable Events: Mark your calendars for these events that offer opportunities for learning, sharing, and networking.
