Track, Measure and Improve your
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) uses Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and associated metrics as tools to track, measure, and improve sustainability performance over time.
Sustainability Reporting provides comprehensive metrics of an organization's impacts based on the Triple Bottom Line (TBL): Society, Environment, and Economic impacts. Reporting has become increasing important to investors, customers, communities, and even employees. It is required in many countries, including the EU, Australia and Taiwan. In the U.S., over 90% of public companies voluntarily report their metrics on an annual or bi-annual basis. Governments, non-profits, and academic institutions also develop public sustainability reports.
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) metrics are tracked by global firms to assess an organization's reputation, risk, transparency, environmental impacts, community contributions, and more. ESG metrics set the standards for a company's operations that investors use to screen for potential investments; customers are increasingly demanding greater transparency of company operations, and research shows that employees perform better when they feel good about the positive impacts that a company is having on their local community and environment.
We help companies create baseline metrics, set goals, and develop systems to manage, report, and improve their performance over time.
A sustainability report represents an organization's TBL or ESG metrics. It is usually published and provides information on their economic, environmental, social, and governance impacts. It presents the organization's values and governance model, and demonstrates the link between its business strategy and commitment to a sustainable global economy.
Who Is Reporting?
Thousands of organizations across all sectors, including public authorities and non-profits, publish
Why Should You?
Transparency matters. Increasingly, investors are demanding reports from companies so that they can better understand their environmental and social impacts, which affect risk and long-term investment decisions.
We work with organizations to create baseline and continuing metrics, set goals, and develop their sustainability reports. We develop sustainability management, reporting, and communication systems to make it more efficient for tracking performance over time. This includes defining and tracking sustainability metrics or indicators that are material to the organization. Through the sustainability reporting process, we help clients benchmark organizational performance, demonstrate organizational commitment to sustainability, and compare and improve performance over time. Once systems are formalized, we work with our clients to develop effective sustainability strategies and action plans.
Sustainability Reporting Frameworks
There are several options for sustainability reporting. To optimize the outcome of our efforts, we utilize proven frameworks to guide metric development and the reporting process. The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) is the most commonly used framework in the world. At SPC, we are global international GRI trainers and can guide organizations through the process to implement a GRI report, as well as provide training. The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) provides a framework for disclosing environmental impacts related to climate change. Other sustainability reporting frameworks include the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC), and Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) for real estate.
