On 17th June 2019, Hilde Blomme, Accountancy Europe Deputy CEO, spoke at the European Court of Auditors in June in the panel on “What is the State of Sustainability Reporting?”. She talked about Sustainability Reporting, Trust & Transparency and the role of auditors.
She provided an overview of progress with sustainability reporting, as part of the wider non-financial information directive within the EU for private sector entities. The results were stark and clearly there is a lot more to do. There is a need for both better quality and greater transparency in sustainability reporting.
