The Reporting Exchange

The WBCSD, CDSB and Ecodesk have developed a new online platform to help business understand and navigate the complex landscape of corporate sustainability reporting.

The world of reporting is complex. Understanding what, where and how to report sustainability information, while keeping up with the latest developments, can be tough and time-consuming.

The Reporting Exchange is designed to bring order and clarity in the sustainability reporting landscape. This free online platform connects business, investors, regulators and academics to reliable and expert-verified information on sustainability reporting requirements and resources.

All users can search for reporting and management resources that relate to their specific geography or sector, so as to understand what, where and how to report.

All the information you need, in one place

The platform is designed to help users navigate this complex world. The Reporting Exchange enables reporters, academics, investors, NGOs, regulators and standard setters to contribute information about reporting in their region, share experiences and learn from others. It is specifically designed to help: 

  • Reporters and businesses find relevant resources to help them report sustainability information in the most appropriate way;
  • Investors understand the context for and influences affecting corporate sustainability reporting;
  • Academics discover more about trends and developments in the sustainability reporting space;
  • Regulators and standard setters compare approaches to sustainability reporting.

How does it work?

Users who sign up for the beta version of the platform can track the trends and receive relevant updates by customising their profile according to the topics they are interested in. The reporting provisions are classified according to several categories, allowing users to search for mandatory and voluntary reporting requirements and resources, or to filter their searches by country, sector or subject.

The Reporting Exchange beta will take place from December 2016 until April 2017. New functionality, features and country coverage will be added through this time. Sign up now at or send us an email at for more information about the project.
