Deloitte comments on the Investment Association’s Productivity Action Plan
22 March 2016
Stephen Griggs, audit managing partner at Deloitte, said:
“We support the Investment Association’s report, which advocates the removal of quarterly reporting from the obligations of UK publicly listed companies. This would encourage companies to think about long-term viability and value creation, and recognise that long-term sustainable performance relies on an understanding of how financial, social and environmental factors have to be part of the business model. It is all about encouraging companies to build resilient organisations through embedding broader issues into their decision-making.”
