The Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) are jointly developing a web-based tool and database to help companies understand and navigate the corporate sustainability reporting landscape.

As the information companies are required to disclose in their annual, sustainability or integrated reports varies and the landscape of reporting frameworks, regulation, policies, standards and guidance is diverse and complex, WBCSD and CDSB have launched a three year "Reporting Landscape Mapping" project. The project aims to develop a web-based tool and database that will help business navigate the corporate sustainability reporting landscape and assess which rules, methods or practices are relevant and applicable to them. WBCSD and CDSB hope that this will enhance and consolidate the disclosure of sustainability information in corporate reporting and encourage the convergence of reporting. The first pilot version of the database is planned for late autumn 2015.
