Ecosocialism is the new sustainable perspective, which encourages particular systemic changes, which put people and planet first. It directs towards policies, based on the nonfinancial criteria, like social needs, wellbeing of every individual and ecological balance.
It establishes structural changes in economy, which would establish social and ecological prosperity by democratic environmental planning.
Sustainable reporting is in accordance with the actual European legislation obligatory for large companies with over 500 employees, which have to disclosure adequate and useful information in its annual or separated report, necessary for understanding progress, prosperity, position and impact of their activities.
Adequate disclosure of the nonfinancial information is fundamental for sustainable financing. The new European Directive for corporate reporting is in preparation and will be accepted until the end of 2022.

Sustainable development means integration of the economic, environmental and social effectiveness of the company. Implementing sustainable reporting inside a company means initiation of the changes to the new (green) workplaces.
