The brief:

Over four years of engagement, Australian Paper required a dedicated Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) report writer to manage the sustainability reporting process, including strategic planning, engaging with internal stakeholders, copywriting and liaising with the GRI head office in Amsterdam.

ZOOiD delivered:

  • Sustainability Report publication for 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013
  • A materiality assessment undertaken with the senior management team 
  • Benchmarking against the global forestry sector
  • Strategic planning, data collection, copywriting and editing
  • Management of report checks with the GRI head office in Amsterdam

Project outcomes: 

  • A robust method for determining issues to Australian Paper
  • Greater engagement with and visibility of the sustainability report with internal and external stakeholders
  • The sustainability reports were used as a valuable communications tool for internal and external stakeholders.

“Marian provided the glue that created the coherence of our GRI based sustainability reports, which were very well received by our stakeholders.  These documents were key to sharing our story both internally and externally. ZOOID was integral in pulling the report together in a way that ensured it represented a comprehensive snapshot of sustainability activities and plans.  I would recommend Marian and ZOOID to anyone seeking to start, or continue, on the journey of telling their company's sustainability story.”
