The key for a meaningful ESG report.



Businesses should recognise and engage with both internal and external stakeholders when designing, implementing and publishing their ESG report. This is the key to a successful ESG sustainability report.

Each stakeholder group plays a critical role in designing and driving forward a company's ESG strategies by leveraging complementary knowledge and skills.

Stakeholders can range from customers and local communities to investors and employees. Each stakeholder group plays a critical role in the design and promotion of ESG strategies. By fostering collaboration and leveraging complementary knowledge and skills that stakeholders offer, companies can improve accuracy, transparency and innovation in their sustainability efforts.

  • Customers: With increasing demands for sustainable products and practices, customers have significant influence in the design of companies' ESG strategies.

  • Communities: Local impacts can have a significant impact on the environment and society, making community involvement essential for sustainable business operations.

  • Investors: By assessing long-term sustainability and resilience, investors guide companies to incorporate ESG strategies into their operations.

  • Employees: Key pillars in the implementation of ESG reporting, employees have the ability to create an enabling work environment, supporting the goals of the business.

  • Suppliers: Suppliers' practices and values influence the entire supply chain, highlighting the importance of collaborative actions.

  • Boards of Directors: Responsible for guiding ESG strategies, boards of directors ensure alignment with the long-term goals and expectations of stakeholders.
