The events that occurred since the first publication of the standard GBS and the increasing number of Social Reports and of Sustainability Report drawn up, with a remarkable evolution in their sizes, emphasis and content, have suggested the need for an upgrade of the rail to transparent reporting of environmental and social impacts of organizations. The growing awareness of the crucial role of companies in the pursuit of sustainable development has led to an acceleration of interest – on the part of institutions and stakeholders such as investors and the community – towards greater transparency of the impact that their choices and actions generate the society and the environment. This has led to important developments in legislation, industry standards, doctrine, practice, bringing out:
– the extension of the areas of financial reporting and the emergence of new tools and methodologies for the measurement and enhancement of aspects of performance not shown from accounting (rating for the Socially Responsible Investment, Balanced Scorecard, Intangibles¬†Budget,¬†Integrated Reporting);
– the requirement of compatibility and convergence between various types of reporting and disclosure.
