Sustainability standard-setters pledge to work together on common goals

A group of international sustainability accounting standard-setters — including the Carbon Disclosure Project, the Climate Disclosure Standards Board, the Global Reporting Initiative, the International Integrated Reporting Council and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board — released a shared vision Friday of the elements needed for more comprehensive corporate reporting and a joint statement of intent to drive toward such a goal, as confusion over the sometimes conflicting sets of standards threatens to impede progress.

In the document released Friday, the groups pledged to work together and committed to engaging with key organizations, including the International Organization of Securities Commissions, the International Financial Reporting Standards Foundation, the European Commission and the World Economic Forum’s International Business Council. They are also being encouraged by the International Federation of Accountants to work together under the auspices of the IFRS Foundation, alongside the International Accounting Standards Board, which is also overseen by the IFRS Foundation.

Unemployment diary: I’m a 27-year-old public relations manager in Massachusetts who’s been out of work since March

  • The Unemployed States of America takes readers deep inside the decimated American workforce.
  • Kally Lavoie is a 27-year-old public relations manager based in Boston, Massachusetts.
  • She left her last job in March for a part-time, remote role in media relations, and was actively looking for public relations positions when COVID-19 hit.
  • Lavoie moved back in with her parents now that her job search is on hold, but she says she worries constantly about her job prospects and is even considering going back to school to learn new skills.

And there were plenty of bread crumbs along the way.

It was just under a year ago that DeChambeau tied for fourth in his final PGA Tour event of 2019, and upon leaving for a two-month break he said with a grin and a measure of mystery: “I’m going to come back next year and look like a different person. You’re going to see some pretty big changes in my body.”
