The Preparer Forum for Sustainability Disclosure (PFSD) is one of WBCSD’s four member services, convening member companies on an online platform to accelerate the global adoption of sustainability disclosure standards and adapting effectively to the changing reporting landscape.

Globally, we are in an unprecedented period of change from voluntary to mandatory sustainability reporting that will imminently affect thousands of companies worldwide. Many companies already have some form of corporate sustainability reporting, but preparing to meet these new requirements will challenge even the most advanced companies. 

WBCSD’s PFSD is addressing the need for impactful guidance and constructive engagement with a beyond compliance approach on performance and impact.
