The document represents the first result of the study conducted by the research group "SDGs and business reporting" and aims to be the starting point of a process for corporate awareness towards sustainable development objectives.
The document reveals our country commitment on Agenda 2030; a commitment that involves the entire "Italian system" in pursuit of the 17 sustainable development goals, through the active role of Italian companies as operators. Hence, it not only creates economic value on sustainable development but also it sensitize other companies, end users and the community in general.
Although the results depict a sustainable development goals reporting in becoming and not entirely conscious, they provide inputs for entrepreneurs, directors, managers, regulators, consultants, etc. who, for various reasons, are the actors in a process of profound business change that is affecting the corporate reporting and disclosures.
The document provides, in this context, useful hints to a better understanding the new corporate reporting direction; indeed, reporting is increasingly affected by an accountability process and responsibility towards both internal and external stakeholders.

Author Biography

GBS - Gruppo di studio per il Bilancio Sociale

The mission of the GBS is related to the development and promotion of scientific research on the Social Report and on issues linked to responsible management processes of companies in order to encourage the dissemination of corporate social responsibility and its application in national and international contexts.
Hence, the GBS aims to play its function as a national standard setter, projecting towards an international dimension; indeed, it is important to underline the fact that there is a proliferation of standards, frameworks and guidelines, which are not always in line with each other.
In such a scenario, it is imperative that the GBS continues to follow the path of a methodological and scientific structural accuracy, catching new trends in the field of social accounting and non-financial reporting through a process of "institutional" inclusion, which is able to involve professionals too.
