What is the purpose of sustainability reporting?
Producing a sustainability report that successfully communicates your performance to different audiences can be challenging. We help companies understand international sustainability reporting standards and guidelines and establish good reporting practices.
What and why
Sustainability reports disclose performance along social, environmental, and – increasingly – economic parameters. Reporting can go a long way in satisfying stakeholders' demands for transparency on corporate responsibility issues. It is no longer enough to say that your company is a responsible corporate citizen that contributes to a sustainable world. You now have to prove it.
Credible communication contributes strongly to your company’s reputation and therefore to your company’s market position and value.
The term sustainability reporting is used to cover a broad range of online or printed formats in which companies report on their social, environmental, and economic performance. It is also known as triple bottom line reporting.
Why partner with us?
Partner with us for a solution that improves your reporting and the process behind it. We verify sustainability reporting to our DNV GL Verification Protocol for Sustainability Reporting. The principles and concepts of the protocol are aligned with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines and the assurance standard AA1000AS. It also applies to sustainability reports based on other principles.
The road to verification will help you prepare for an independent audit. Verification will explain what the actual process entails.
