Join us for this interactive one hour webinar, to kick-off our six-week consultation period, during which we will be inviting the market to share their insights into how we can drive effective corporate reporting, addressing any barriers caused by misalignment amongst reporting frameworks and standards.

During this one hour webinar, we will share updates from the Corporate Reporting Dialogue Better Alignment Project, insights from report preparers and users on how to navigate the corporate reporting system, and outline the consultation process.

We will also have technical experts on hand from CDP, CDSB, GRI, IIRC and SASB to answer any questions you might have about this project.


We will be using GoToMeeting software to run this webinar – usable on your computer, tablet or smartphone, and we encourage you to follow this link in advance of the meeting to ensure you can join us on the day:

We will circulate a link to the webinar to all those who register.


About the Better Alignment Project

The Better Alignment Project is a ground-breaking two-year project focused on driving better alignment in the corporate reporting landscape, to make it easier for companies to prepare effective and coherent disclosures that meet the information needs of capital markets and society.

Based on the understanding that ‘non-financial’ environmental, social and governance (ESG) information often becomes financial in the long-term, investors are looking for further harmonization of non-financial information and a better understanding of the reporting landscape. Furthermore they want to understand the links between ESG information and both the risks and opportunities of the organization. As the Task Force for Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) recommendations have demonstrated, investors increasingly expect to find this information in mainstream financial filings.

Through this project, the Corporate Reporting Dialogue participants, including CDP, the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB), the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), are committing to continuous progression towards further alignment where possible between ESG reporting standards and to improving the integration of non-financial and financial information going forwards.

Multi-Stakeholder Consultation

We are committed to keeping the market regularly informed of our progress, and making sure this is an open project, through regular stakeholder engagement, events, roundtables and progress updates.

The Better Alignment Project’s global stakeholder consultation period will take place from March until May 2019. As part of the consultation process, we will open an online survey, available on, from 20 March until 1 May 2019. Regional stakeholder engagement roundtables will be held globally from April until May 2019.

Information gathered from the consultation period will inform the end of year one report, to be launched in September 2019, as well as identify focus areas for further ESG alignment work in year two.

This is a two-year project, with the initial findings due to be published in September 2019 on
