Workshop: Driving Impact Through Sustainability Reporting
October 23, 08:30 - 11:30
This GreenBuzz workshop is co-organised with and supported by Sustainserv (read more below).
All too often, the value of sustainability reporting for the company and its stakeholders remains untapped because too many companies fail to present their efforts as a core component of business strategy, decision making, and value creation. In many cases, sustainability reports are only seen as PR brochures to promote the company’s image.
However, the value of sustainability reporting does not lie within a fancy-looking report, but with the reporting process itself. If sustainability reporting is strategically aligned with the core business and management of the firm, it can raise awareness and support changing the business towards more sustainable practices. Done properly, sustainability reporting is a means to an end, namely demonstrating internally and externally how the company creates long-term value for itself, society and the environment.
In order to enable driving impact through sustainability reporting, this workshop addresses the following questions:
- How can you focus on what really matters, namely on connecting sustainability with the core business as a prerequisite for credible and meaningful sustainability reporting?
- How can you gather data that allow managers but also investors to make decisions?
- How can you report impacts? How do you demonstrate the effects of sustainable management and provide proof for it?
After a welcome and input by the workshop leader and senior consultant at Sustainserv, Manuela Huck-Wettstein, a case of a company on how sustainability reporting helped change its business will be presented (information about the case follows shortly). The case will then be discussed in peer-to-peer learning groups.
