What do high-quality non-financial reports look like?

Transparency is key to move business towards a sustainable economy. Accountants can support companies in improving how they report, including on so-called non-financial information which covers sustainability and corporate social responsibility. Stakeholders need relevant, reliable and comparable reports as the basis for sustainable decision-making.

Our Members have been actively promoting high-quality NFI reporting for decades. Some organise annual awards to honour companies with high-quality sustainability reports. Check their winners from 2018/2019 below to get examples of high-quality sustainability reports.
