Corporate sustainability describes business practices that are built around social and environmental considerations. It also formulates strategies to build a business that fosters longevity through transparency. In the past, most supporters of corporate sustainability reporting spoke about the intangible benefits of reporting, such as employee loyalty or reputation among consumers. However, increasing research suggests that benefits also extend to the firm’s balance sheet.
This one-hour course outlines what corporate sustainability reporting is, why it is important, and what companies should be doing it. The course also covers the different types of corporate sustainability reporting, and what goes into a report with walk-through on the process of putting a report together. We also cover case studies of different companies currently participating in corporate sustainability reporting.
