The Corporate Reporting Dialogue is a platform, convened by the Value Reporting Foundation, to promote greater coherence, consistency and comparability between corporate reporting frameworks, standards and related requirements.


The Corporate Reporting Dialogue strives to strengthen cooperation, coordination and alignment between key standard setters and framework developers that have a significant international influence on the corporate reporting landscape.


The Dialogue aims to:

  • Communicate about the direction, content and ongoing developments of reporting frameworks, standards and related requirements
  • Identify practical ways and means by which respective frameworks, standards and related requirements can be explained and aligned, notably to avoid potential conflict, inconsistency and duplication between them
  • Clarify and resolve any emerging issues from their respective activities and other matters of common interest
  • Share relevant and significant information of direct interest to each other
  • Express a common voice on areas of mutual interest, where possible, to engage with interested parties, including regulators.
