The Road to

Corporate Sustainability Reporting is being mandated across the world

This is a collaborative portal for assurable Sustainability Reporting

We engaged stakeholders around the world to understand the availability of educational services for sustainability reporting and found:

  1. The growing number of service offerings focus on providing guidance on what is expected and why it is important.
  2. There is a global skill scarcity of guidance on how to establish the necessary supporting infrastructure for such reports.
  3. Sustainability reporting requires a “whole organization” pivot, not just a business unit / discipline focus.
  4. Sustainability reporting requirements mean an integrated approach is required across every functional area in an organization.
  5. Most organizations have limited capacity to take on additional “compliance burden” due to the current economic, geopolitical and environmental instabilities.

This portal intends to convene carefully curated providers of such scarce skills, and support them to scale up their services, enabling integrated organizational capabilities for assurable sustainable reports.

Launch event

Other planned events

Getting ready for sustainability reporting

Organizations have a opportunity now to prepare for new regulations around sustainability reporting, and commit to transparency and accountability. We already know that sustainability reporting will consider a range of environmental, social and governance (ESG) areas. Certainly a starting point would be to identify such metrics which are relevant for the organization and the context within which it operates, but what metrics?


This event will provide organizations with guidance on where to start on the road to sustainability reporting – to meet relevant stakeholder needs, wants and expectations of such sustainability reports, no matter the regulatory environment within which the organization operates.
