Sustainability report are published by a company or organization to reveal to stakeholders information about the economic, environmental and social impacts of the company or organization.There are various things that can go into a sustainability report including the organization’s background, value, and governance model. The report may also include various strategies as well as communications that the company or organization may use.
As sustainability become more and more main stream, companies are starting to see the importance of sustainability report. Since each sustainability report differs from others, how can we then distinguish one company from another?
During my internship at World Resources Institute, I have examine in detail hundreds if not thousands of sustainability reports. As a MES student, I have a focus on GHG, energy, water, wastewater, and waste (environmental sections of sustainability report).
