News brief: Former IASB vice-chairman becomes chair of Corporate Reporting Dialogue

Ian Mackintosh, former vice-chairman of the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), has been announced as the new chair of Corporate Reporting Dialogue. Mackintosh stood down in June 2016 after five years in his role as vice-chairman.

The Dialogue is designed to respond to market calls for greater coherence, consistency and comparability between corporate reporting frameworks, standards and related requirements. It is an initiative to bring together international organisations, convened by the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).

The Dialogue brings together CDP, the Climate Disclosure Standards Board, Financial Accounting Standards Board, Global Reporting Initiative, International Accounting Standards Board, and the International Organization for Standardization and Sustainability Accounting Standards Board.
