I’ve just hit publish on a good Op-Ed from Bob Eccles and Mike Krzus, entitled: “The future of corporate responsibility and sustainability reporting: Integration“.
It’s hard to argue with their central thesis that: “Integrated sustainability and financial reporting is an ethical obligation”.
As the science around climate change shows us just what we are doing to the planet, corporate reporting is going to be an ever more vital tool to demonstrate progress on sustainability for business.
Clearly integration is a good idea, and we should applaud those trail blazing companies that have helped show the way. Companies such as Novo Nordisk, United Technologies, Philips, BASF and Fibria. They surely have a useful head-start.
