Overview

International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) are required by 144 jurisdictions around the world, including 15 of the G20 nations.  The IFRS Foundation is charged with developing and maintaining international accounting and sustainability standards through its oversight of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the recently formed International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB).  Our conference will review the current and prospective work programs of the IASB and ISSB and assess their impact on corporate reporting.  Additionally, our speakers will examine the rollout of European Single Electronic Format (ESEF), emerging ESG data standards, and the  similarities and differences between IFRS and U.S. GAAP.
