“When we started Reporting 3.0 in 2013, we felt the urgent need to offer a pre-competitive community platform that would enable key actors to work together to revamp the design of the reporting regime to truly serve a green & inclusive economy. I strongly believe that reporting can play a trigger function if the sustainability context between macro-level social, ecological and economic systems and the micro-level of individual company impacts is disclosed seamlessly and such reporting is supported by redesigned multicapital accounting rules, data architecture and the disclosure needs of adapted and new business models. There is no such process anywhere in the world serving this purpose, so Reporting 3.0 can play a crucial role to catalyze a green and inclusive economy through reporting.”
Bill Baue, Senior Director, Reporting 3.0
As an internationally recognized expert on ThriveAbility, Sustainability Context, and Online Stakeholder Engagement, Bill designs systemic transformation at global, company, and community levels.

He works with organizations across the sustainability ecosystem, including AccountAbility, Audubon, Ceres, GE, Global Compact, Harvard, UNCTAD, UNEP, Walmart, and Worldwatch Institute.
“What excites me most about working with Reporting 3.0 is the opportunity to collaborate with other ‘positive mavericks’ who see that efforts in sustainability reporting and integrated reporting to date — while laudably setting a solid foundation — have yet to deliver the needed transformation to true sustainability and beyond. So Reporting 3.0 is needed to help actualize the promise of a really regenerative & inclusive economy.”
