Sustainability report: Reporting is a must nowadays if you want to maintain good relationships with your stakeholders and protect your reputation. However, the layout and scope of corporate sustainability reports can vary quite significantly while still remaining relevant to stakeholders. Regardless of format, the most important goal is to ensure that your core messages reach your target audience.
Rankings and ratings: The facts and figures that you collect for your corporate sustainability report form a solid basis for inclusion in sustainability ranking and rating indexes. Leading performance on environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues, for example, can have a positive impact on your share price.
Non-listed companies can also benefit from voluntary participation in standardised sustainability questionnaires not only by enabling useful comparisons with competitors but also by helping to identify potential savings and develop strategies.
