How do you create value through sustainability?

Sustainability Reporting & Business Strategy

Sustainability reporting.  What’s it all about?  It’s about telling your sustainability story. It is a story that represents the outcomes of your sustainability strategy. Your sustainable organisation.  Every organisation has a sustainability story – whether it’s a journey that has already been embarked upon, or a journey that is just starting.  It’s time to tell yours.

What’s your sustainability story? 

This is how we can help…

Sustainability reporting using the GRI Standards

Writing your own sustainability report can be time consuming and also a little daunting. Using the world’s most widely used sustainability reporting framework by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), we can author a world class report for you or simply provide advisory services around using the framework if you’d like to write it yourself.

Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Certified Training

ZOOiD provides a range of GRI Certified training courses, including our highly regarded two day Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Process workshop.   We are the first GRI Certified Training Partner in Australia/New Zealand.

Strategic planning for sustainability reporting

We can help plan how to approach your sustainability report, including how to incorporate this into your overall business strategy. 

We can also assist with stakeholder engagement, materiality assessment, benchmarking, governance and ethics review, and supply chain review.

Third party review of your sustainability report

We can provide an expert and objective review of your report to determine the integrity and quality of the report, and adherence to the GRI Standards. 

Report reviews are available for pre-publication (useful to ensure you will meet GRI’s Core or Comprehensive reporting requirements) and post-publication (to improve your next report).

Co-ordinate Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Reviews

The GRI’s ‘Alignment’ platform provides a number of useful reviews including:

Materiality Disclosure Service
SDG Mapping Service
Content Index Service
GRI-Referenced Service
Disclosure Review Service

We can co-ordinate any of these review services for you.
