Introduction to UNCTAD

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) was established in 1964 as a permanent intergovernmental body. UNCTAD is the part of the United Nations Secretariat responsible for dealing with development issues, particularly international trade, which is the main driver of development.

UNCTAD's work can be summed up in three words: think, debate, and deliver. This work is carried out in these main areas: research and analysis, consensus-building, policy dialogues, technical cooperation, and capacity-building.

UNCTAD provides guidelines on various aspects of corporate reporting, including Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) aspects, to help businesses contribute effectively to sustainable development goals.

Exploring the UNCTAD Framework

UNCTAD's guidance on corporate reporting is designed to help companies effectively disclose their impact on sustainable development, both positive and negative. The guidelines cover the following areas:

  1. Financial Reporting: UNCTAD encourages the application of high-quality international standards and promotes the convergence of national accounting and auditing standards with international standards.
  2. Non-financial Reporting: This includes ESG reporting and provides a holistic view of a company's performance in terms of sustainable development. It helps companies measure their contributions to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  3. Enterprise Reporting: UNCTAD's guidance in this area helps micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) improve their corporate reporting.

The UNCTAD reporting guidelines are designed to encourage companies to participate in the global effort towards sustainable development.
