The KPMG Survey of Corporate Responsibility Reporting 2015

The KPMG Survey of Corporate Responsibility Reporting 2015
This report explores how the world’s largest 250 companies report on carbon in their annual financial and CR reports. It also includes quantitative data on CR reporting trends, covering 4,500 companies across 45 countries. KPMG has published this survey at regular intervals since 1993. The growth in the number of countries and companies covered is just one indication of how CR reporting has evolved into a mainstream business practice over the last two decades.

Bridging the gap between Integrated Reporting and GRI G4 Reporting

Bridging the gap between Integrated Reporting and GRI G4 Reporting
Bridging the gap between Integrated Reporting and GRI G4 Reporting aims to provide an understanding of the interactions between Integrated Reporting and GRI G4.

Value Creation of Sustainability Reporting

Value Creation of Sustainability Reporting
Sustainability reporting is increasingly valued by investors and firms alike for the clarity it provides on the value creation process, its future-oriented perspective, and its emphasis on measurable performance. A study of 56 Asian companies found that share price returns for firms which adopt sustainability reporting are consistently higher, suggesting that the market places a value on clear communication and transparency.

Sustainable insight: The essentials of materiality assessment
Materiality is the principle of defining the social and environmental topics that matter most to your business and your stakeholders. Some 80 percent of the world’s largest 250 companies already identify material sustainability issues in their reporting. Yet the process of identifying material issues is a challenge that clients of KPMG member firms are increasingly seeking our professional guidance on.
