The State of Corporate Sustainability Reporting in the EU

Alliance Event

Presentation & Discussion | 17 February | Brussels

The Alliance for Corporate Transparency will present the results of the research carried out on the content and quality of the disclosures of 1000 European companies, the largest study to date on corporate sustainability reporting. 

The event will focus on the central role of companies’ reporting in the sustainable finance and corporate governance debate and its connection with the initiatives and proposals stemming from the Sustainable Finance Action Plan. The project was set up to analyse how companies are implementing the requirements introduced by the EU Non-Financial Reporting Directive with the objective of providing evidence and data to substantiate the debate on the standardisation of corporate sustainability reporting and the role of the law.

  • Alain Deckers, Head of Unit, Corporate reporting, audit and credit rating agencies, DG FISMA, EU Commission
  • Charlotte Gardes, Deputy Head of the Financial Stability at DG Trésor, France
  • Bastian Buck, Chief of Standards at GRI
