Communicate. Lay the solid foundation for good communication

Good communication is ever more important in the digital age we live in. Information is instantly and freely accessible throughout the globe and this applies to companies, too: people are able to instantly access information about your company's policies, the impact of its activity, its reputation, with or without your consent.

 

How are you communicating with your most important stakeholders?

Whether you are aware of it or not, conversations are taking place about your company. Your most important stakeholder (that can hold you back or stop you from reaching your objectives) take action and make choices based on what information they have available. 

 

A first-class sustainability report is a very important tool in your efforts to:

Build trust with important stakeholders

Companies around the world are competing for resources, top talent and business. With your first-class sustainability report you build trust with stakeholders that can hold you back or stop you from reaching your objectives: • Consumers/ clients • Investors • Top talent • Prospective business partners across value chains • Communities worldwide • Local authorities • NGOs.

 

Attract/maintain top talent

Attract

Top talent is ever more important in the effort to achieve strategic business objectives and can help you achieve considerable success in the marketplace. With your sustainability report you demonstrate that you are the employer for the long term. Imagine how much easier it would be to convince potential top talent that you are the right employer if you had a first-class CSR/ESG/SDG/Sustainability report, showing that you are taking solid, focused action and that you are also addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Maintain

In a first-class sustainability report stakeholder engagement is thoroughly conducted. It takes into account the reasonable expectations and interests of stakeholders such as the people employed by your company. Solid action is then taken (measure, manage, change) to reduce as far as possible the risk of alienating or losing this important stakeholder for your business success.

 

Attract/maintain new business

With your sustainability report you demonstrate that you are the business partner for the long term. Imagine how much easier it would be to convince potential business partners through tenders and other processes if you had a first-class CSR/ESG/SDG/Sustainability report.

Attract/maintain investors.

Attract 

Investors are, today, asking tough questions of companies. The main reasons are related to risk management in the short term and to assessment of the real chances of growth in the medium and long terms. Imagine how much easier it would be to convince potential investors if you had a first-class CSR/ESG/SDG/Sustainability report that demonstrates that you identify and effectively manage risks. Investors expect you to be ahead of the curve and need to understand how you will benefit from the transition to the green circular economy. How you respond to climate, demographic, technological change and political developments.
