The Dreier Chair in Accounting Ethics Distinguished Speaker Series welcomes Nicolai Lundy, chief of market relationships at the Value Reporting Foundation, for a timely lecture titled "The Biggest Change to Sustainability in 40 Years That ISN’T Climate Change: Sustainable Capital Markets."

The 1980s introduced the public to what was already considered a scientific consensus: CO2, methane and other emissions created a greenhouse gas effect. 40 years later, we’re on the cusp of globally standardized sustainability disclosure that will embed sustainability into the daily functions of the capital markets. There is broad consensus among institutional investors and corporations that sustainability can pose risks and opportunities to a company’s current and future value. But there hasn’t been consensus about what sustainability information is most helpful for analyzing those risks and opportunities – until now. The IFRS Foundation has established the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) to help investors compare companies, identify leaders and laggards, and direct capital accordingly.

Nicolai oversees corporate and investor outreach efforts, communications, and education and partnerships at the Value Reporting Foundation, which resulted from the merger of IIRC and SASB. The Value Reporting Foundation focuses on the financial impacts of sustainability and the benefits of a holistic view of value creation. In summer 2022, the Value Reporting Foundation is consolidating with the IFRS Foundation to staff the work of the ISSB.
