What is Sustainability Reporting?
Sustainability reporting is a popular way for organizations to share information with stakeholders on a range of activities like financial performance, environmental efforts, social impacts, and the empowerment and protection of employees. Sometimes called corporate social responsibility (CSR) or triple bottom line reporting (people, planet, profit), it goes beyond dollars and cents to include discussions about how a company’s vision and values tie into its global sustainability strategy.
Why Do Sustainability Reporting?
Many companies began doing sustainability reporting as a way to combat negative impressions of their businesses in the marketplace. Today, reporting is part of the larger trend toward transparency and is a tool for building trust with employees, vendors, investors and other stakeholders. Recent studies also show that sustainable minded companies consistently outperform their peers. According to Ernst & Young, the benefits of Sustainability Reporting include:
- Reputation building
- Employee engagement
- Improved access to capital
- Increased efficiency & decreased waste
