Business reporting in the fourth industrial revolution

This paper calls for a data revolution!

Climate change is transforming the way in which citizens, consumers, investors, regulators, and other stakeholders expect companies to report.

No longer are financial reports considered sufficient. Nonfinancial or prefinancial information is now recognized as imperative to more broadly assess value formation and inform stakeholders. 

At the same time, digitalization—the Fourth Industrial Revolution—has transformed and continues to transform global markets. The intersection of these disruptions will substantially change the way corporate reporting addresses the value paradigm required in the 21st Century.

Developments in machine learning, for example, will transform reporting, oversight, auditing, and monitoring systems. That will improve accessibility, clarity, measurement, and quality, thereby facilitating comparability and enabling the liberation of data currently locked in siloed reports, formats, and platforms.
