Sustainability Reporting
Road to Greater Accountability or Road to Nowhere?

This symposium focuses on the current state, challenges, and future prospects of sustainability reporting. One goal is to communicate the considerable progress that has been made in developing standards and in getting support from large corporations, which are beginning to use these standards to prepare sustainability or "triple-bottom-line" reports. A second goal is to foster discussion about the issues that remain to be addressed, including the questions of access to which kinds of information, the capability of providing independent audits and who should audit, and comparability of reports. Issues of credibility are paramount.
