           Trends & Remarkable Reports
FEdition 2023
or over 20 years, the Institute of Registered Auditors (IBR-IRE) has been highlighting Belgian organisations or organisations active in Belgium that publish information on their specificities in terms of Environment, Social and Governance disclosure (the “ESG” criteria).
We want to start by thanking the organisations that support us, especially the Federal Institute for Sustainable Development (FIDO – IFDD), that helps us to promote this event year after year and BNP Paribas, that hosts our event this year.
This year 65 organisations submitted a report. The 2023 partici­ pating organisations are divided between:
— 24 large listed organisations and PIEs, already subject to the Non-financial Reporting Directive (NFRD), i.e. having: more than 500 employees and more than €17m balance sheet total or of €34m net turnover;
- 31 organisations that are either listed and PIEs not subject to the NFRD or exceed two of the three following criteria : 250 employees, €17m balance sheet total, €34m net turnover;
- 10 other organisations which include “SMEs” that have less than 250 employees and organisations such as NGOs, non-profit organisations, federations, schools or public institutions.
OBJECTIVE
The Awards for Best Belgian Sustainability Reports initiative aim: — to encourage organisations to report transparently on sustainability issues by promoting the integration of sustain- ability information, such as environmental, social and govern-
ance (ESG) issues, into organisations’ reports;
— to raise awareness and facilitate the dissemination of best
practices on sustainability and SDG reporting in Belgium;
— to encourage external assurance of sustainable information by a registered auditor listed with IBR-IRE to enhance cred- ibility and reliability of the organisations’ sustainability
reports;
— to increase the organisations’ awareness of the use of
reporting on sustainability issues as a tool to help them engage in a transparent and effective dialogue with stake- holders;
— to reward transparent, balanced and relevant communication on sustainability.
