Internal CCR Roundtable: Joint reporting cycle debriefing

  • Center for Corporate Reporting Dorfstrasse 29 8037 Zurich Switzerland (map)

This CCR Roundtable is reserved for members only and is a format where we like to discuss and share experiences and challenges from the last reporting cycle as well as open questions for the coming reporting cycle. Based on feedbacks from our members, we propose to address the topics, outlined in the agenda.

We plan to frame the discussion in the following way:

  • What is the issue, challenge or question? Have we understood it?

  • Who has faced a similar issue, challenge or question?

  • Can we share approaches, solutions, or ideas?

  • What could be a specific take-home?

Please note that the event is held in accordance with Chatham House rules.

If you have any questions, please contact the CCR Office:
