The report assesses the need for impact measurement and reporting standards by benchmarking the existing quality of ESG and impact reporting of 30 non-financial firms and 30 impact investors for comprehensiveness, transparency, materiality/intentionality, and other criteria.

All that and much more will be considered further in detail at the event. We look forward to welcoming you to a fruitful discussion.
