Open until 31st May 2024

The International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC) has launched a survey aimed at exploring the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors into valuation practice.  

The IVSC emphasises that for valuations to meet International Valuation Standards (IVS), they should consider ESG factors and relevant regulations, as long as these factors are measurable and would be considered reasonable by a valuer applying professional judgement.   

The survey seeks to gauge the extent to which ESG considerations are factored into valuations in a manner consistent with International Valuation Standards (IVS) and covers all types of valuations, including those for financial reporting, market capitalisations, secured lending, and tax reporting.  

The survey is open from the 28 March 2024 and closes Friday 31 May 2024. 

The API encourages members to complete the survey and give their valuable feedback here.
