The Top 10 Do’s and Don’ts when preparing your Sustainability report

Source: , 5 December 2016

Ah, November. I love this time of year. Year end is right around the corner and many companies are starting to plan their next Sustainability report. I can smell the key performance indicators in the air. Mmmmmm. Sustainability reporting and assurance is near and dear to my heart. I not only completed my doctoral research on the topic many years ago, but I have also worked on well over 100 different Sustainability reporting and assurance engagements with companies in many sectors, from oil and gas and electricity to telecommunications and retail, and almost everything in between. Some of the reports were groundbreaking and fantastic, while others… well, not so much.

Over this time I have learned many informal lessons and picked up many reporting tips. Some are do’s, and some are don’ts, and some are “if that happens, then do this”. The list is fairly long, and every year I pick up a few new ones. But for the sake of brevity, I have boiled them down to the following top 10: 5 do’s and 5 don’ts. Feel free to add yours in the comment section.
