A new report from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) suggests that despite progress made in sustainability reporting and its growing importance, the fragmentation of the landscape might mean that the discipline is "lost in the right direction".

The author of the report, who is the Founding Director of CDSB and responsible for CDSB’s work to develop a framework to report environmental information in mainstream corporate reports, examines the changing corporate sustainability reporting landscape, outlines its components, discusses current challenges and proposes development opportunities. She also considers the trends, levers and drivers influencing the reporting landscape and concludes that new and evolving expectations about corporate performance, new measurement criteria, and the means by which companies are assessed are calling into question the role of the corporation and the definition of corporate performance.
