Sustainability report: the commitment to a more sustainable and responsible future

What is a sustainability report

The sustainability report is a corporate communication and management tool that enables organizations to report their economic, social and environmental performance. It mirrors a company's commitment to sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR).

Each year, organizations can voluntarily draw up a sustainability report, which differs from the Non-Financial Statement (DNF), required by law. The DNF is actually a document required by EU legislation and Legislative Decree 254/2016 in Italy. It is a basic tool that identifies ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) issues and allows investors easy access to non-financial information.

What the sustainability report is for

The sustainability report conveys sustainability activities and achievements to stakeholders. It focuses on three main pillars:

  • Environmental
  • Social
  • Economic

The sustainability report therefore assesses a company's impact from all angles, helping it to develop strategies to reduce its environmental footprint and increase operational efficiency. In many countries, sustainability reporting is mandatory and regulated by specific laws, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) or the SASB Standards, which often require verification by independent third parties.

The advantages of publishing a sustainability report are considerable and tangible for every company. It is an authoritative statement of intent that follows a careful and detailed analysis. Corporate reputation improves, risks and opportunities are identified, costs and employee involvement are optimized, and regulatory compliance is ensured.

How to draw up a sustainability report

To draw up a sustainability report, a company must first define its objectives. Immediately afterwards, it must collect quantitative and qualitative datato then analyse and evaluate it, involve stakeholders and finally communicate the report following international standards.

The sustainability report is a strategic tool that improves corporate performance and helps build a relationship of trust with stakeholders. Through this process, companies can identify opportunities for innovation and sustainable growth, contributing positively to society and the environment.
