What was the format of your latest sustainability report?
Internet is the dominant distribution channel for sustainability reporting. According to our survey most often in the form of a PDF, but interactive and browsable PDFs are also used. 50 percent (61 in 2018) answer that they print the sustainability report. Just over 70 percent of respondents do not plan to use any other format or distribution channel for their next report.
How many hard copies do you print?
How do you let others know your report is published?
The most common way to publish the sustainability report is by press release, thereafter sharing it on the company’s or organisation’s website, followed by social media. Examples of other ways are at the Annual General Meeting or as a Communication of progress to the UN Global Compact.
