"Sustainability reporting: panacea or pacifier?"

In the European Union, the finishing touches are being put on a comprehensive package of regulations that will bring about a landslide in the external reporting of companies. In addition to annual financial reporting, a large part of the business world will in the near future also have to report on - what is called - sustainability aspects of business operations. In his farewell lecture on 8 September, Professor Ruud G.A. Vergoossen, Professor of International Financial Accounting, will indicate what opportunities and threats he sees with regard to sustainability reporting. He will also discuss the role of the accountant.
