The Reporting Exchange launches today: the global resource for corporate sustainability reporting

Sep 26, 2017 - The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) launched the Reporting Exchange - the single most up to date and comprehensive source of information on sustainability reporting requirements and resources currently available.

Over the past 25 years, there’s been more than a ten-fold increase in the number of corporate reporting requirements on environmental, social and governance issues. Lack of coordination makes it frustrating, overwhelming and time-consuming for businesses to keep up.​

The Reporting Exchange will help businesses find trustworthy, up to date and accessible sustainability-related information – making it easier than ever for businesses to know what, when and how to report.

The platform will be a critical tool for people involved in preparing and delivering corporate sustainability, annual or integrated reports. The Reporting Exchange includes information on environmental, social and governance reporting requirements and provides resources from over 60 countries. This new online platform provides business reporters, investors, academics and policymakers with the most up to date and comprehensive set of information on sustainability reporting requirements and resources currently available. Reporters and disclosure gurus will find everything from mandatory regulation to supporting guidance, voluntary standards and stock exchange listing requirements.

Boosting clarity in the reporting space will be critical as the role of business in the global sustainability agenda becomes increasingly important.

“Meaningful sustainability reporting can transform the global economy, and business has the opportunity to lead the way,” said Peter Bakker, President and CEO at WBCSD. “The Reporting Exchange is an important step in scaling up our efforts to achieve sustainability, and will be indispensable for anyone who prepares, delivers or studies corporate sustainability reports.”
