Sustainability insights

Further insights from CIPFA's sustainability research

As part of our commitment to supporting sustainability reporting, a wide and in many ways uncharted arena, we have issued a suite of discussion papers building on the findings of our report Evolving climate accountability: A global review of public sector environmental reporting.

Delving into the specifics of this burgeoning field, the papers look at the state of sustainability reporting in the public sectors versus the private, the dual role of governing bodies in the public sector, the difficulties of defining the boundary for sustainability reporting, how existing frameworks may be adapted for sustainability, and whether there's a need for a disclosures framework based on the specific characteristics of the public sector.
