Shaping the future of corporate reporting

18 September 2017, 11:00 Résidence Palace – International Press Center 155, rue de la Loi – Blok C 1040 Brussels View on Google Maps


To continue the debate on the future of corporate reporting, Accountancy Europe is taking steps to further develop some of the points put forward in its 2015 discussion paper: the increasing importance of non-financial information and the interconnection with financial information, the development and coordination of non-financial information frameworks, the ‘CORE & MORE’ reporting model, and technology as a driver and enabler of change. This event will serve as a platform for Accountancy Europe and participants to gather views from key stakeholders.
