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’.
