It was sponsored by Eni and co-organized by the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, University of Siena and the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).
The event was aimed to show the synergies between sustainable development and competitiveness of the business through the discussion of a panel of influential personalities from the academic world, from international institutions and companies, which have been questioned about how society and the private sector can cooperate to achieve a sustainable growth and on how the value generated by them can be managed and measured.

They dealt with the issue of Sustainable Development from the perspective of the international debate on macroeconomic measures "beyond GDP", the upcoming trend of integrated reporting for the value creation's representation and the international debate related to the Post-2015 Agenda and the next Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The topics of the workshop were further deepened through the concrete experiences of some big Italian companies that presented their vision on Integrated Thinking & Reporting and Sustainable Development.
