A strong disclosure regime that promotes real transparency is a pivotal feature of market-based monitoring of companies and is central to shareholders’ ability to exercise their shareholder rights on an informed basis. Over the past years, transparency has largely been the leitmotiv for regulators to require additional disclosures that goes beyond the financial and operating results of the company.

In supporting of the shift towards long-term value creation, companies are invited to readdress their narrative and to provide meaningful disclosures. High profile initiatives like Integrated Reporting or the Global Reporting Initiative try to respond to market calls for greater coherence, consistency and comparability between corporate reporting frameworks, standards and related requirements.

The EcoDa webinar will illustrate how risk managers can support their boards in expressing the risk appetite of the organisation and provide input in the 'annual report' process. The EU system will be compared to the US approach.
