A4S Essential Guide to Management Information

The guide has been created to support finance professionals to develop and integrate the information needed to respond to social and environmental risk and opportunity into core management information processes.
Business performance is no longer solely judged in terms of financials. So, the way decisions are made, and the information upon which they are made, needs to change. Decision makers therefore need to look beyond the traditional financial metrics, to also consider social and environmental information.

Following the COVID-19 crisis it is clear that information on social and environmental considerations is more pertinent than ever. To build back with more resilience this information is essential.

The guide sets out practical steps that finance teams can take to develop an effective management information framework, build a robust control environment and produce insightful management reporting. It also contains illustrative examples to bring the guidance to life and show the benefits to different types of companies.
