Join Amr Addas, Strategic Advisor for Sustainability at the John Molson School of Business, and Erkki Liikanen, Chairman of the IFRS foundation, for a fireside chat. They will discuss the adoption of the ISSB, pushback on sustainability, and of the momentum of disclosure frameworks worldwide.

Erkki Liikanen became Chair of the IFRS Foundation Trustees in October 2018. He has been reappointed twice; his third three-year term will end on September 30, 2027.

Before taking on the role as Trustee Chair, he served two seven-year terms as governor of the Bank of Finland. Before joining the Finnish central bank, he served two terms as a commissioner at the European Commission, first for Budget and then for Enterprise and the Information Society.

Liikanen has worked internationally for many years. From 2004 to 2018, he was a governor of the International Monetary Fund and a member of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank. In 2012, Liikanen chaired a group of experts set up by the European Commission to consider EU banking sector reforms in the wake of the financial crisis. The group’s recommendations are known as the ‘Liikanen report’.
