Enabling secure and scalable non-financial reporting and data flows

Icebreaker One, a partner of the Future of Sustainable Data Alliance (FoSDA), has published for consultation and input an open report focused on enabling secure and scalable non-financial reporting and data flows.

The report presents the scope and complexity of data sharing across markets, supply and value-chains. It also underlines challenges that create friction, inertia and inhibit action in delivering goals, including hard-programmed habits and underlying presuppositions and premises. Finally, the report also sets out solutions that can reduce friction in data-sharing and proposes levers of change that can help unlock innovation (e.g. policy and regulatory, perception shifts, behavioural changes). 

The report’s intended audience includes decision-makers and their advisors who wish to understand the transformative potential of data, and how its usage can be unlocked at scale to enable it to act as a flow of evidence that informs action. While it covers ‘technology concepts’ it is not ‘about’ technology. Rather, it addresses designing the conditions for success that would enable millions of experts, practitioners and organisations to better discover, access and use the data they need to make informed decisions. 

You can find more information about the report here, including a link to the document that is open for comment by anyone as part of a development process (util 28 Feb 21).
