Sustainability reporting helps organisations to set goals, measure performance, and manage change to make their operations more sustainable. Corporate sustainability reporting conveys disclosures and an organisation’s impacts – positive or negative – on the environment, community and its own governance to its stakeholders.

Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability reporting are becoming common place for businesses world-wide. In some jurisdictions, sustainability reporting is driven by regulation, or required to meet financial disclosure obligations and contracts with governmental organizations. Consumers, investors and other stakeholders are demanding that corporate sustainability programs and policies are in place, or that suppliers are selected that can demonstrate corporate sustainability reporting through the supply chain. Annual reports and marketing now include reference to key corporate sustainability initiatives and achievements.

Sustainability metrics reporting standards are becomingly increasingly prevalent among leading companies to communicate their environmental, social and governance (ESG) activities. Some of these disclosure tools, such as CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), etc. vary in approach.
