Welcome to the Platform on the Future of Sustainability Reporting

...

The International Multi-Stakeholder Platform for the “Future of Sustainability Reporting” will work in collaboration with organizations and participants, to support nations, cities and companies to manifest their contribution towards a sustainable future with tangible lasting results. To realize this goal, the existing reporting practice needs to be transformed. The Reporting 3.0 Platform delivers newly evolved approaches and ideas.

...

Using a wide range of offline and online formats, the international Reporting 3.0 platform makes it possible to determine the status quo of reporting and its further development. We bring together topics, ideas, organizations and participants, examine these from new perspectives and combine them to jointly enhance their impact.

...

The Reporting 3.0: The Future of Sustainability Reporting conference held in September 2013 in Berlin was a comprehensive stock-taking of this topic and also provided an outlook on what lies ahead. In 2014, BSD Germany will continue hosting events devoted to the further development of this important international topic.This year, three Transition Labs and a two-day annual conference with international participants as part of the Reporting 3.0 platform. These events continue to develop topics from the previous year while following a detailed thematic structure.All Reporting 3.0 activities seek to highlight relevant developments, identify potential paths for development, and point out specific implications for companies and decision makers. Our platform has also set itself the goal of proactively accompanying international discourse on this topic in the years to come and providing valuable impetus for its further development. That is why in 2014 there will also be local Reporting 3.0 kick-off events held in the US and China which focus on local challenges in an international context.

    Transition Lab 3 – Sustainable Business Models

    New ways of value creation and how they instigate change in reporting

    February, 2015, 1pm – 6pm

    GIZ House, Reichpietschufer 20, 10785 Berlin

    The idea of a ‚green & inclusive economy’ instigates a lively discussion about the ways to get there. While governance and incentives play an important role for consumers and investors both ways, it is mainly corporate innovation that needs to achieve new pathways through new and sustainable business models. The third transition lab is therefore starting with the question ‚ what IS a truly sustainable business model’ and then looks at various streams in which components are inherited. Think of the circular economy, regenerative or restorative business models, clean technology, or the sharing economy. We will look into the developments around a ‚sustainable business model canvas’, ways to organize entrepreneurial collaboration around the target of a ‚green & inclusive economy’, but will also return to the consequences of these for corporate reporting. How will profit/loss accounts change, what will all of this mean for the balance sheet and its interpretation, and how will ‚success’ be reported to the stakeholders in sustainability or integrated reports?

    Reporting 3.0 Roundtable

    Insights on the Future of Sustainability Reporting form the US perspective

    March, USA (exact date & place to be announced soon)

    BSD has initiated a worldwide dialog around the Future of Sustainability Reporting in various regions it is represented, building on the initial sold-out conference in Berlin, Germany, in September 2013. A one-year program of transition labs to further deepen insights on the most important issues is in full swing in 2014 in Europe and on 6/7 October the 2nd annual conference in Berlin, Germany, titled ‚Reporting at the crossraods – ensuring purpose, practicability, performance’ took place. 

    The conference took an important step in accelerating a roadmap towards new generation of reporting by building on the outcomes of last year’s inaugural conference and the results derived from various Reporting 3.0 Transition Labs held in Berlin and Reporting 3.0 Roundtables held in Beijing, China, and Sāo Paulo, Brazil. The aim of the US Roundtable is to instigate a first round of input around the themes discussed at the 6/7 October conference in Berlin and to align first steps for a couple of transition labs, to be held directly in the region in 2015.

    Reporting 3.0 Roundtable

    Insights on the Future of Sustainability Reporting form the Brazilian perspective

    August 18, 2014, São Paulo, Brazil

    Around 20 reporting specialists and company delegates gathered in São Paulo after a workshop of the local GRI Focal Point to interact with the Reporting 3.0 platform. In group discussions, the participants discussed the key questions of the platform and selected the sub-questions which in their view are relevant in the context of Brazil. Most outstanding were the questions of the effective benefit that reporting may provide to stakeholders, the influence that the process should effectively have on a changing business models, and of course, in an emerging country like Brazil a most urgent question, how growth and limited resources can combine. Brazil is a country where still major development goals need to be achieved, and therefore resource use will be intense as long as people want to achieve a better life style and consume more.

    The input of the Brazilian Kick-off will be brought to the larger debate and for the next future, more events such as Labs are foreseen on local level. One important suggestion from the participant was, to widen the community as much as possible and engage persons from the academy and of circles that are not directly involved with sustainability. It is important to hear their voices and opinions and the platform can be the ideal space to gather with them.

    1st Annual Conference of the Reporting 3.0 Platform

    A critical reflection of the status quo of the ongoing development of Sustainability Reporting in the European and international context

    September 06, 2013, 09 am – 06 pm, Heinrich Böll Foundation, Schumannstraße 8, 10117 Berlin

    In September 2013, BSD Germany organized the sold-out conference ‘The Future of Sustainability Reporting’ – a critical reflection of the ongoing developments of Sustainability Reporting in the European and international context.’ The event did cover a plethora of issues and trends that influence the future of non-financial reporting, e.g. the move to integrated reporting, the confusion of the current standards on non-financial reporting, the further internalization of external effects, the implications of planetary boundaries and social developments on corporate growth paradigms, as well as the growing trend of companies to deliver against ‘North Stars’ and commit to ‘net-positive’ targets.

    Transition Lab 1 – Bridging the Sustainability Context Gap

    Improvement of Context-Based Information as a Prerequisite for Meaningful Sustainability

    Reports April 29, 2014, 1pm – 6pm, GIZ House, Reichpietschufer 20, 10785 Berlin

    UN high-level conferences in the last couple of years propagated a ‘Green & Inclusive Economy’ as a counter-model to the paradigm of ever-growing economies, consumerism and individual optimization. It involves the recognition of planetary boundaries and places the desire for human well-being at the center. But can we already measure progress and how much of the journey towards a Green & Inclusive Economy is still yet to come? Starting from the goal-state of a Green & Inclusive Economy, the first Transition Lab 1 delivered possible solutions to significant challenges in this context in an interactive and structured discussion. One particular focus was the role of reporting for the necessary change processes towards the ‘green & inclusive economy’.

    Transition Lab 2 – Convergence in Sustainability Reporting

    Core Elements of Future-Ready Standards and Frameworks

    June 27, 2014, 12 pm – 6 pm, GIZ House, Reichpietschufer 20, 10785 Berlin

    The second Transition Lab in 2014 contributed to the consolidation of the debate around sustainability standards and frameworks, offered opportunities to exchange views on challenges for practical implementation and, based on their convergence, demonstrated approaches that can further increase the impact and relevance of sustainability reporting. In particular, the area around ‘materiality identification’ within the context of requirements for a stable sustainability management process  as well as reporting using the six capitals framework of the IIRC as a connector and initial point of comprehensive reporting, was reconsidered. It became clear that clearer convergence is needed and that the six capitals framework needs considerable extra support to take up the role it could have in the aim to create a holistic structure to define ‘sustainable value-added’.

    Reporting 3.0 Roundtable

    Insights on the Future of Sustainability Reporting form the Chinese perspective

    September 05, 2014

    Microsoft Accelerator Beijing, China

    BSD has initiated a worldwide dialog around the Future of Sustainability Reporting in various regions it is represented, building on the initial sold-out conference in Berlin, Germany, in September 2013. A one-year program of transition labs to further deepen insights on the most important issues is in full swing in 2014 in Europe, and on 6/7 October the 2nd annual conference in Berlin, Germany, titled ‚Reporting at the crossraods – ensuring purpose, practicability, performance’ has been announced. For this purpose BSD is inviting to a preparatory Roundtable in China, too.

    The aim of the Roundtables is to instigate a first round of input around the themes to be discussed at the 6/7 October conference in Berlin, seek high-level speakers for the conference, discuss possibilities of a delegation to be representing the region in Berlin, and to align first steps for a couple of transition labs, to be held directly in the region in 2015.
