Discover the future of reporting at the 4th International Conference of the REPORTING 3.0 Platform May 30-31, 2017 in Amsterdam

Source: , 16 March 2017

Do you think the current reporting regimes and practices are fit-to-purpose for spurring the emergence of a truly green, inclusive and open global economy? Neither do we.

That’s why we formed the Reporting 3.0 Platform (R3) – to build on the foundation of progress set by existing reporting standards and frameworks by identifying the gaps they leave, and working with our ecosystem of positive mavericks to fill those gaps with future-fit practices. And now, the R3 Operations Team and Steering Board are excited to announce the 4th International Conference of the Reporting 3.0 Platform, centered on the theme of Disclosure for the Green, Inclusive & Open Economy – Blueprinting the Future.

This year’s Conference convenes high-level leaders from corporate, investment, standards, NGO, academic, government, intermediary, and other communities, who are setting the agenda for the next generation of reporting advancements. Opportunities for marrying financial prosperity with sustainability achievement abound.
