The corporate reporting landscape is increasingly complex, as different countries and organizations move to introduce new standards, revised frameworks and overlapping initiatives.
We provide companies with clarity on the principles that underpin reporting standards and frameworks, and we give practical guidance on the sustainability information that should be included in a company's annual, sustainability or integrated report.
To cut through the complexity of the reporting landscape, we are developing the Reporting Exchange. This is a free, collaborative and global knowledge platform that makes sense of the many reporting provisions that exist around the world.
We also help companies improve the effectiveness of their non-financial reporting through Reporting Matters. This is a unique yearly project that assesses the sustainability reports of our members. We provide an in-depth overall analysis of facts, trends and areas for improvement in our Reporting Matters publication, and each member can take advantage of a deep-dive feedback session.
Sustainable Development Goal target 12.6 “encourages companies, especially large and trans-national companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle”. With the Reporting Exchange and Reporting Matters, we are helping to ensure that companies have the tools and resources they need to integrate sustainability information into mainstream corporate reporting.
