#Reporting and Communications


Sustainability reporting is at an important juncture. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is transitioning from “Guidelines” to a “Standard,” while the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) are experiencing growing uptake of their frameworks. Meanwhile, a wide range of issue-specific reporting frameworks are emerging on everything from climate change to human rights and privacy.

It is companies that hold the pen when writing reports, and this begs important questions about the role of company practitioners in shaping the future of sustainability reporting. What reporting frameworks and structures do companies want to see? What approaches to sustainability reporting are most likely to drive improved sustainability performance? What report structures are most likely to meet the information and decision-making needs of different audiences? What should BSR’s point of view on sustainability reporting be?

Join us for a discussion about the role of company practitioners in shaping the future of reporting, and hear BSR’s view as to why the future of reporting is triangular.

Speakers

  • Lee Ballin, Head of Sustainable Business Programs, Bloomberg
  • Dunstan Allison-Hope, Managing Director, BSR
  • Jonathan Morris, Manager, BSR
