“For us, tax advisors and auditors, sustainability reporting was a topic for the future long before legislation addressed this issue. For more than 20 years, we have supported companies with our expertise and best reported their best. Today, families have “sprung up” and sustainability has become an overarching and central value of our community, and we are committed and we work for it with conviction,” says KSW President Herbert Hove.
“To the extent that investors and other stakeholders increasingly base their decisions on sustainability reports and trust the information contained in them, the need to emphasize these sustainability reports is also growing equally. Through the ASRA, the IWP wants to support high-quality reporting and enhance confidence in Stakeholder Reporting,” said IWP President Gerhard Schwartz.
Against this background, the best reports will be awarded as references for the twenty-third time this year.
