The Challenge - Meeting the demand for more information at a higher frequency
Sustainability reporting is now mainstream business practice – over two thirds of the Global FT500 report on elements of their environment, social and governance agenda. Reporting is rapidly changing in response to new stakeholder demands. Man, for example, is regularly contacted by analysts from investment houses and research companies. The expectation on companies to produce accurate, timely and comprehensive information that meets the requirements of all stakeholders is not being met by the printed report format. This is placing an increased burden on Sustainability Teams.
