What we do

We offer companies a framework for reporting environmental information with the same rigour as financial information. In turn this helps them to provide investors with decision-useful environmental information via the mainstream corporate report, enhancing the efficient allocation of capital. Regulators also benefit from compliance-ready materials.

The CDSB reporting framework sets out an approach to reporting environmental information & natural capital in mainstream reports, such as the annual report, 10-K filing or integrated report. Find out more...
