G100 Virtual Forum on Introducing the VRF: Completing the System to Assess, Manage & Communicate Value

Date : 24 June 2021

Location : Webinar

Group of 100 Members are invited to the upcoming G100 Virtual Forum on Introducing the VRF: Completing the System to Assess, Manage and Communicate Value organised by the G100 Sustainability Committee and the Business Reporting Leaders Forum (BRLF).  This will be one of our series of G100 Virtual Roundtables over 2021 on Corporate Reporting and ESG.

The newly created Value Reporting Foundation (VRF) answers the market’s call for harmonization by merging the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC) and the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB).

Join us for a briefing with Janine Guillot, CEO, VRF (formerly CEO of SASB), and Michael Bray, Director of Global Accounting Relationships, VRF, who will discuss how the VRF’s comprehensive suite of tools can help businesses and investors develop a shared understanding of value and how it is created, preserved, or eroded.

Janine and Michael will explain the IIRC and SASB’s natural fit, and how the Integrated Thinking Principles, the Integrated Reporting Framework and SASB Standards together provide 21st century market infrastructure to assess, manage and communicate long-term value creation strategy and performance.

Agenda:

Welcome: John Stanhope, Chairman, Australian Business Reporting Leaders Forum (BRLF)
