Materiality matters. What is relevant for analysts and investors? How can we connect disclosure and information needed? What may be the next steps to improve comparability and data quality? What is the best practice? Can we create coherence of the voluntary & regulatory initiatives in order to create a common framework as level playing field serving as potential basis for trade agreements in the long run?
With a perspective on national reporting, which long-term visions, new partnerships and roles are developed? How can we contribute to the revision of the non-binding guidelines? Contribution of National Governments & Authorities, Business, NGOs & Academia.
Within the context of the goals of the agenda 2030 what are the roles of all the participants and what the methods and tools are that we can use in order to accomplish the SDGs on a national level? What is the role of Governments, Business, Educational system and Local Authorities? How can we achieve the bottom up approach and the capacity building on Sustainability?
The intention of this Conference is the creation of a documentation of the recorded key discussion issues & opinions on CSR & Sustainability in a broad stakeholder dialogue. The documentation will be provided to the European Commission to reach their Sustainability aims.
