  • Non-financial communication to stakeholders (i.e. integrated reporting, corporate and social reporting, and ESG measures);
  • Accounting regulation: regulators’ role in avoiding misrepresentation while satisfying stakeholders’ call for information;
  • Monitoring duties and audit impacts on corporate reporting beyond accounting standards;
  • Managerial and cost accounting enhancing non-financial and non-GAAP reporting.
