Here’s something from the desk of bad advice: Sustainability reporting has grown, evolved, devolved and reimagined itself several times over the past decade. A review of the sustainability reporting from top 100 companies by Fortune reveals that sustainability data has benefited from standards, and reports now include very material information about impacts that have implications for business strategy.
It is also apparent that sustainability reporting must be a resource-intensive activity. Imagine transparency as an expensive window into your company. Now imagine that window covered by fresh bricks on both sides.
