WBCSD | Redefining Value

The days of measuring business success through financial metrics alone are over. Our vision is that by 2050, all companies will measure, value and report their true value, true costs and true profits.

To do this, companies need to go beyond just accounting for financial capital. They need to take an integrated approach, via a better understanding of how to incorporate and account for their natural and social capital as well.

We're developing innovative frameworks and resources to advance non-financial capital measurement, valuation and reporting.
