Responses to Interconnected standard setting for corporate reporting Cogito paper feedback

This page gathers the public responses we have received on the Cogito* paper Interconnected standard setting for corporate reporting. A summary of all responses received will be published on this page after the deadline for comments.

About the publication
Global risks and opportunities mean that financial information alone cannot give a full picture of a company’s performance. Climate change, environmental degradation, social unrest and internally generated intangibles are addressed by non-financial information (NFI) reporting. However, the hundreds of NFI reporting initiatives available are leading to confusion and the potential for greenwashing. For an effective response to these global issues and stakeholder demands, NFI reporting needs to be harmonised and interconnected with financial reporting.

This thought-leadership paper* introduces nine criteria and applies them to four approaches to interconnected standard setting for corporate reporting. It sets out the vision of our independent task force and offers ideas on how we can make progress towards a global corporate reporting structure.
