Gather Around – Issue 33 – May 2022

1 June 2022

The regulatory landscape is complex and evolving. Every month we bring you the latest developments in regulation and ‘best practice’ in corporate governance and reporting.
May has been a relatively light month in terms of both regulatory and best practice developments. New draft European sustainability reporting standards have been issued for consultation which muddies the water in respect of developments at an international level at the ISSB. There was also commentary leading up to the Queen’s speech this month that the long-awaited governance and audit reforms to introduce amongst other things, a new more powerful regulator ARGA, would be dropped from this year’s parliamentary sessions. As it turns out, it was retained but questions remain over the scope and details of the draft bill. Only time will tell.
This month we are also publishing the third of our best practice papers focusing on disclosures around the external market environment. Curiously, this is an area that does not have any notable best practice guidance associated with it, yet doing it well is a critical part of telling any business’s story. Read our best practice paper to discover some top tips on how to move your reporting forward.
