Current Projects

The Financial Reporting Lab (Lab) has three major projects underway; they have made the following progress on their initiatives:

  • Digital Future: Artificial intelligence - Following our recent report on the blockchain, (PDF) the next phase of the Digital Future project is looking at the impact of Artificial Intelligence on the preparation and use of corporate reporting.  The Lab is currently speaking to companies, investors and technology companies and expects to issue its report by the end of the year.  If you have a particular interest in this project, please contact t.toomse-smith@frc.org.uk.

  • Climate and Workforce reporting – In September 2018 we announced a new project to look at how companies might meet the needs of investors on the reporting of climate and workforce. Our aim to understand how practice in these areas reflects the characteristics of good reporting identified through its suite of strategic reporting projects (business model, risk & viability and performance metrics). The project is open to participants, and we encourage interested parties to come forward. If you have a particular interest in this project, please contact h.armitage@frc.org.uk.
