Get to know 360report during a 45 minute free webinar on September 26, 2013. Matthias Keitel leads the webinar and answers all your questions. In recent years, public interest in the sustainability of economic activity has increased and as a result, companies are increasingly adopting the practice of sustainability reporting and benefiting from the economic advantages and additional market opportunities.
Sustainable corporate practice implies a company’s acceptance of social, ecologic and economic responsibility and the orientation of economic activities towards this responsibility. However, sustainability comprises more than good sustainability performance within the organization’s own business operations. In addition, investors, suppliers and employees have to be geared to recognizing and maintaining the same values.
In particular, society’s increasing focus on compliance with social standards and human rights, together with ecologically compatible management, leads to a rise in public pressure to which companies can only react with sustainable economic management and its documentation.
Operating in a sustainable manner generates several benefits. It fosters the confidence of customers and business partners as well as a positive public image. Furthermore it builds a competitive advantage for a company’s market position and helps to anticipate and avoid risks arising from new legal standards. Thus, sustainability is not only indispensable regarding ecological and social aspects; it also forms a basis of a corporate mission for long-term market success.
Concurrent with the rising relevance of sustainability, so are the requirements for sustainability reporting increasing. Reporting should be orientated to global corporate social responsibility (CSR) standards. Important international standards are Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), United Nations Global Compact, ISO 26000 and Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG).
360report covers all four standards and uses innovative input and output logic to reduce complexity. Thus, every company can generate a sustainability report which conforms to global accepted standards, quickly and easily.
