Increasingly organisations are being required to report on a wide range of sustainability issues – from impact on climate change to energy use and gender pay gaps. At the same time, the number of possible frameworks or standards to use for sustainability reports is proliferating.
Wright Communications has the expertise to guide you through the multiple options for reporting and has the experience to create structured roadmaps that provide a clear route to introduce sustainability reporting and thinking into an organisation.
Our approach to sustainability report writing is to find the right framework, concept and style that works best for your organisation, your brand and your stakeholders. We avoid applying a rigid, cookie-cutter report for every client.
Working towards a best-practice sustainability or ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) report requires several steps.
Wright Communications can guide you through this process of understanding the various frameworks, the process of determining what is important to your organisation, what matters to your shareholders and stakeholders, and how to tell your sustainability story.
We have experience using the following techniques, frameworks and services:
Materiality Assessment: Finding out what matters to your organisation and your stakeholders through stakeholder interviews and desktop research.
Reporting roadmap: Determining the appropriate approach for your organisation and creating a practical plan for reaching your objectives.
