Climate change is increasingly front of mind for investors and other IAASB stakeholders as its effects are increasingly visible. Given climate change’s potential to impact most, if not all entities, directly or indirectly, the IAASB issued this Staff Audit Practice Alert, which assists auditors in understanding what already exists in the International Standards on Auditing today and how it relates to auditors’ considerations of climate-related risks in an audit of financial statements.
