SSE has been making comprehensive environmental and social disclosures on a voluntary basis for many years to help stakeholders understand its key sustainability-related impacts and performance. SSE recognises a need for increased standardisation in sustainability-related disclosures to allow for better comparability and decision making for investors and other stakeholders assessing company performance. It welcomes the work being undertaken by the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) to create a global baseline of sustainability-related disclosure standards and it is engaging in the consultation process.
