<Valuing Non-Financial Performance

Current developments towards integrated reporting and new legislation in the European Union are calling for the further disclosure of non-financial information. Businesses need more comprehensive systems and processes to manage their economic, social and environmental performance.

Whilst CSR is increasingly becoming a core pillar of business, there are still challenges inintegrating non-financial performance measurements into business strategy internally andcommunicating the results externally.To overcome these challenges, this project equips companies and investors with practical toolsfor measuring, managing and reporting on non-financial information.

Accordingly the key objectives of this collaborative venture are:
Increase quality and efficiency of CSR management in companies
Develop methods used to assess CSR management and integration
Exchange best practice on CSR management
Devise a set of non-financial reporting super factors with investor community
Improve the communication between companies and investors
