Study A closer look at reporting criteria

Monday, 27 March, 2017

Recently Ernst & Young published their study ‘A closer look at reporting criteria’, commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.

Within this study, assessment criteria have been developed to assess transparency on natural capital and compliance to the EU directive for non-financial information. The developed criteria have also been tested on a pilot group of 26 companies from different sectors in the Netherlands and EU.

Key objective of the pilot was to test the current status with companies and to see whether existing benchmarks (such as the Transparency Benchmark) could be adjusted in the future to include ongoing or upcoming changes. The pilot resulted in remarkable insights and potential developments.
