During the implementation of their commitment, companies will be required to publicly disclose, on an annual basis, progress made towards realizing the commitment. This is to ensure that commitments have lasting impact and to protect the integrity of the UN and the Rio+20. Business.un.org will also be the place for companies to report on their progress.
This disclosure may be part of another form of annual communication to stakeholders and must include updates on progress against the targets laid out in the commitment. These accountability and integrity measures will be further developed in the lead-up to Rio+20.
Member companies must report their progress through the official business.un.org/commitments website, which provides continuously updated information on the reporting requirements and the accountability and integrity measures.
WBCSD will regularly communicate about the progress made by our member companies to the Commitments to the Future We Want initiative.
In addition, all commitments made ahead of Rio+20 and linked to its agenda will be included in an online compendium of commitments on the Rio+20 website (www.uncsd2012.org).
