External Disclosure

We’re looking at how businesses communicate their methods of risk management and their true performance to the outside world and how this affects the sustainability transition. To date, companies invest considerable amounts of time and money into disclosure efforts, but these don’t always capture the full benefit of sharing meaningful and decision-useful information.

Our work in external disclosure is helping business understand how decision-useful and material information provokes certain responses from public, financial and investment communities.

Project List

Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) Preparer Forums

We are facilitating and coordinating Preparer Forums for priority non-financial sectors at the request of the TCFD. The Forums seek to identify effective practices, common challenges, understand user needs, outline guidelines and disclosure developments over time.

Reporting matters

We developed Reporting matters in partnership with Radley Yeldar to help improve the effectiveness of sustainability reporting. We analyze reports from all members annually to provide feedback and track trends.

The Reporting Exchange

The Reporting Exchange is the global resource for sustainability reporting. It’s a free, online platform that brings together corporate sustainability reporting requirements and resources from over 70 countries for easy access.


Purpose-Driven Disclosure (PDD)

PDD aims to help companies disclose relevant, decision-useful information – that is, information with a purpose – to encourage the flow of capital to more sustainable companies and outcomes.    

Assurance & Internal Controls

This project helps companies generate value through robust internal controls and obtaining external assurance on their sustainability disclosures to enhance credibility and trust in non-financial information.
