Ethical Corporation has just published a new briefing that delves into the role of SDG’s in sustainable reporting & communications - which can be accessed here.
The report offers 9 pages of expert response and analysis to provide comprehensive insight into the Goals, including:
It is getting harder for businesses to avoid taking responsibility for the delivery of the SDG’s as more and more companies step up to the plate, as Richard Howitt of the IIRC said, “businesses around the world are responding to calls to contribute to the SDGs”. A key part of this involves the re-focus of reporting & communications strategy and the SDG’s offer a useful structure for companies to do this. Appropriately, this report looks at the ways the SDG’s can be successfully integrated into the reporting process drawing on real cases to demonstrate how this can be realistically achieved.
Fouad Benseddik, Director of Methods and Institutional Relations, Vigeo Eiris has warned that “’SDGs washing is what one ought to be paying attention to”. This report tackles how to integrate the SDG’s into reporting strategy in a way that directs action and contributes to change.
The use of SDG’s in reporting & communications is certainly moving in the right direction but there is still progress to be made to truly deliver the right kind of impact.
