The value proposition for sustainability reporting is clear: by disclosing and communicating environmental, social, and governance goals and progress towards them, companies can improve reputation, build consumer confidence, and even improve risk management and increase innovation. There are many ways to build reporting into your programs, whether by making use of established reporting tools such as GRI or CDP; including sustainability performance as part of your overall performance disclosures by using guidelines such as those created by the International Integrated Reporting Committee (IIRC); or making use of ranking tools such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI).
No matter what method you choose, the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship can help you get up to speed. How can companies gain executive buy-in for committing to sustainability reporting? While it’s undeniable that certain social and environmental concerns can pose real business threats, research shows that investing both time and resources into sustainability and the reporting of progress toward CSR targets can help position companies to meet the demands of future challenges while maximizing returns.
The Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenship is here to help you determine which sustainability reporting formats are right for your company and to help you get started. We are a certified training partner for most standards. Here is a sample of the resources we offer our members.
