Organizations are increasingly taking steps to make their businesses more sustainable. But it’s equally critical for them to inform stakeholders about how — and how well — they are achieving their sustainability goals.
Sustainability disclosure is the act of communicating performance relating to financial, environmental, social and governance activities. Sustainability disclosure can involve regulatory reporting — such as disclosure of environmental liabilities or mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting — as well as voluntary disclosures, such as corporate responsibility reports. Effective sustainability disclosure meets diverse stakeholder expectations by aggregating information and disseminating it consistently and credibly across all communication channels.
Savvy enterprises know that they can enhance their brand, improve stakeholder credibility and boost operational efficiencies through robust sustainability disclosure. Learn how to take your organization’s sustainability disclosure to the next level by exploring Deloitte's Sustainability disclosure & reporting framework which is comprised of three primary elements, strategy, process and data.
