On November 7, 2019, the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) released an article on how accounting for value creation needs rethinking.

Viewing value creation only through the lens of shareholders means undermining trust in the organization, compromising its reputation, and even threatening its license to operate. A broader set of data, information and insights is needed to provide a bigger picture of how value is created.
