A sustainability report is an organizational report that gives information about
economic, environmental, social and governance performance.
Corporate sustainability reporting has a long history going back to environmental
reporting. The first environmental reports were published in the late 1980s by companies
in the chemical industry which had serious image problems. The other group of early
reporters was a group of committed small and medium-sized businesses with very advanced
environmental management systems.
Non-financial reporting, such as sustainability and CSR reporting, is a fairly recent
trend which has expanded over the last twenty years. Many companies now produce an
annual sustainability report and there are a wide array of ratings and standards
around. There are a variety of reasons that companies choose to produce these reports,
but at their core they are intended to be "vessels of transparency and accountability".
Often they also intended to improve internal processes, engage stakeholders and persuade
Organizations can improve their sustainability performance by measuring, monitoring
and reporting on it, helping them have a positive impact on society, the economy,
and a sustainable future. The key drivers for the quality of sustainability reports
are the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), (ACCA)award schemes
or rankings. The GRI Sustainability Reporting Guidelines enable all organizations
worldwide to assess their sustainability performance and disclose the results in
a similar way to financial reporting. The largest database of corporate sustainability
reports can be found on the website of the United Nations Global Compact initiative.
