Using Existing Reporting Systems to Report on Commitments


Using existing reporting systems to report on commitments 2019-12

This document illustrates how companies may use existing reporting systems to help report in accordance with the Accountability Framework by presenting examples of three commonly-used frameworks and clarifying the ways in which they fulfill or are aligned with elements of the Accountability Framework. The focus here on these three existing systems is illustrative and not exhaustive; companies may also use other reporting tools and approaches to report effectively on these themes, provided that the guidance in this document is followed. As alignment between the Accountability Framework and various reporting systems increases, this resource will be updated to reflect those changes.

This document is intended to be a resource that supports the Operational Guidance on Reporting, Disclosure, and Claims.
