How do you create value through sustainability?

Sustainability Communications

Communicating your sustainability activities can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it’s important to communicate your activities, and on the other hand it can be difficult to correctly formulate your sustainability message. 

We can communicate your sustainability message in a way that is transparent, greenwash and whitewash free, and resonates with your audience. 

What would you like to communicate?

This is how we can help:

Develop a communications strategy around your sustainability activities

A well planned communications strategy will ensure that sustainability communications across your various communications platforms, functions and audiences is coordinated.

One sustainability message.  One sustainability voice.

Write, or help you write your Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Report

The Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards are widely considered the world’s best practice sustainability reporting framework. GRI reports tell a story about your environmental, economic and social performance and activities and help to give you a whole of organisation view of your current performance on important issues and improve your sustainability performance each year.

Write, or help you write your Integrated Report

Integrated reports are not merely an extension of your sustainability report. Preparing an integrated report requires understanding and implementing strategies that help your organisation and investors understand the value that you create in terms of the six capitals: financial, manufactured, intellectual, human, social and relationship, and natural capital.

Write, or help you write your Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) report

Reporting to the SDGs requires clarity on which of the 17 goals are important to your organisation and determining relevant targets.   

An SDG report can be prepared independently, or as part of your GRI Standards or Integrated Report.

Write your sustainability focused internal and external reports, brochures, print advertisements and websites

Succinct, tailored, green-wash and white-wash free messages are essential throughout your communications materials.  Sustainability reports, organisation, product and service print and web communications and other materials may be included in your sustainability communications suite.
