A summary of recent developments at IIRC/ICAS, WBCSD and SASB.

The International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) published a new report describing how businesses can achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The report argues that corporate reporting frameworks can play a critical role in enhancing corporate contribution to the SDGs.

The World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) launched the Reporting Exchange, a free, online platform designed to help businesses find trustworthy, up to date and accessible sustainability-related information – making it easier for businesses to know what, when and how to report.

The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) opened its full suite of sustainability reporting guidelines to public comment. The exposure drafts, which impact 79 industries, are open for a 90-day public comment period.
