XBRL News about ESG, technology and EU trends

Here are the three most relevant developments in the world of structured reporting we became aware of in the course of last week. 

1  ESG practitioners detail top reporting challenges

2  Calculations, new formats, and formula: latest technical updates from XBRL International

Much of the presentation was devoted to discussing the upcoming Calculations v1.1 specification. Although this specification provides only an incremental change to current XBRL calculations functionality, it was clear from other presentations during the conference that this update is keenly anticipated.

Trying to keep up with engineers’ work is challenging, but always rewarding!

3  ESEF in practice: third instalment considers sustainability reporting

In case you missed it, Accountancy Europe’s third ‘ESEF in Practice’ webinar, held with event partners Toppan Merrill and Workiva, is now available to view in full online, along with a brief event recap. This series always brings interesting insights from a range of expert speakers, and the latest instalment was no exception.

This program is definitely worth checking out in detail if you’re interested in what’s happening with digital reporting in Europe.
