A Director's Guide to Corporate Responsibility Reporting

A Director's Guide to Corporate Responsibility Reporting
This guide helps directors of companies characterise their current CR reporting strategy. It draws on best practice and the experience of a number of Business in the Community’s member companies.

It is designed to guide directors through five challenging questions facing decision makers as they develop a reporting strategy that is appropriate to their business:

  1. How will reporting support our business strategy?

  2. What are we legally required to do?

  3. What is important to the people who really influence our business?

  4. What do we report?

  5. How do we demonstrate credibility?

Few companies aspire to leading edge practice against all the criteria presented. There are often valid reasons to excel in some areas and simply to be within the zone in others. We hope this guide will help you to decide the most appropriate positions over time for your business.
