Enterprise reporting as the basis for sustainable investment

Enterprise reporting on sustainability is an important prerequisite for the promotion of sustainable investment relevant for the achievement of the SDGs. Efforts are being exerted at a global level to promote meaningful disclosure on the contribution of enterprises towards sustainable development and the SDGs by harmonizing sustainability accounting and reporting frameworks and standards.

The roundtable will enable participants to review the latest developments on this topic. The event will bring together key players in this field with a view to promoting further harmonization and consistency and comparability in measurement and reporting.

Issues to be addressed:

  • What is the present status of global efforts aimed at harmonizing frameworks and standards on sustainability reporting?
  • What needs to be done to further promote more consistent measurement and reporting?
  • What are the main challenges in linking sustainability reporting with reporting on progress on the SDGs?
  • How can governments be assisted in improving the sustainability reporting infrastructure in their countries?
