Environmental sustainability reporting

With widespread adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), there remains a possibility that a uniform framework for environmental and sustainability reporting will emerge.  This will give a level of prominence to environmental costs, benefits, and sustainability within financial statements.

Environmental and sustainability reporting, taking account of an organization’s impact on the planet, have become a high priority for shareholders and regulators alike.
