SUSTAINABILITY & INTEGRATED REPORTING

We conduct in-depth assessments of your sustainability practices, and provide targeted recommendations and trainings for your continued success.

Sound sustainability management enables today’s leading corporate executives maximize economic value while mitigating environmental impact and promoting social welfare – what are often referred to as a company’s ‘triple bottom line’. As part of this, more and more organizations ( both corporations and non-profits) are opting to monitor and report on their sustainability efforts, either through stand-alone sustainability reports or integrated reports.


WHY REPORT?

Sound governance systems that maximize overall stakeholder value – including shareholder value creation, social value creation, and environmental preservation – significantly enhance long-term corporate performance.

Reporting on their sustainability management performance enables organizations (including both corporations and non-profits) to:

  • Identify and address both short-term and long-term environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities.
  • Attract international capital, as well as increase client loyalty and trust.
  • Lead deep-rooted transformations by mainstreaming best ESG practices across all operations and activities.
  • Create shared value, strengthen relationships with diverse stakeholders, and lead the way for sustainable business on the national and regional level.

INTERNATIONAL BENCHMARKS & GUIDELINES

Principles, guidelines and benchmarks like those developed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) or the UN Global Compact (UNGC) provide a comprehensive framework for reporting in a structured and consistent way. For example, the GRI’s reporting guidelines help companies and NGOs determine gaps in areas they do not typically consider important, only to find that changes have a significant impact.

Reporting on performance according to international standards also increases transparency and accountability. This builds stakeholders’ trust, and can lead to benefits such as greater access to capital, improved employee retention and recruitment, and clients and consumer loyalty, amongst others.

The GRI and the G4 Guidelines

The GRI’s guidelines are the most widely used and recognized standards for sustainability reporting. Regular updates and adaptations are made to ensure these meet the sustainability needs of organizations and their stakeholders, leading to the current ‘G4’ Guidelines. The guidelines are also developed in harmony with other international standards, such as the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Organizations, ISO 26000 and the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles.
