In recent years directors and CEOs of companies have been placing more importance on holistic reporting of company activities rather than simply reporting what is required by the Accounting Standards, the Corporations Act and other legislation. The Global Reporting Initiative is an international not-for-profit organisation that has pioneered and developed the worldâ€™s most widely used voluntary Sustainability Reporting Framework. (http://www.asx.com.au/documents/public-consultations/global-reporting-initiative-and-sba-submission-15Nov13.pdf) In 2013 the fourth iteration of the Sustainability Reporting Framework guidelines were released.
