The Future of Governance and Reporting

Black Sun provides key insights and research to assist our clients and to contribute to the wider debate and discussion on best practice of corporate governance, corporate reporting and future trends impacting organisations and their key stakeholders.

The role of corporate reporting and corporate governance in re-building trust and inspiring confidence in the UK economy has been brought to the forefront in addressing the challenges and to drive change through three clear agendas: the Corporate Governance Code, the UK’s Strategic Report and the future of reporting through new digital frontiers.

We have several resources available here to help you stay up to date on all the changes and discussions. To receive further updates on governance and reporting please contact Sarah Myles.
