The sustainability report provides a comprehensive view of an organization's progress toward integrated economic growth and development. It is much more than the common financial report, which focuses mostly on the present achievements and positioning of the organization - customizing it for a developing Nation.
The sustainability report - which is very carefully read by stakeholders, banks and investors, enables them to make decisions about risks and opportunities. They demand reports that are balanced, accurate, transparent, timely and above all - reliable. This is why you need a company like ENVIRTA to write your sustainability report. Our report is an important extension for developing a systematic approach to managing the integration of sustainability, performance and management.
Unlike financial reporting, the process of creating a sustainability report focuses on management-oriented departments. It is a very efficient tool for strengthening stakeholders' trust, which is likely to enhance reputation, increase valuation, and reduce uncertainty. The report can also be a key driver in demonstrating transparency and accountability for sustainability activities and performance within the organization. At the same time it comprises a motivational driver for all levels of management and operational employees to deal more seriously with sustainability issues, instilling routines for considering sustainability-related information in decision-making.
Realizing its growing importance, more and more organizations are adopting sustainability reporting as an integral part of their strategic management. To guarantee credible and professional written sustainability reports, many organizations have turned to ENVIRTA. These companies know that sustainability reporting is an ongoing process, far beyond the informational document itself. It involves strategies, interaction with stakeholders, as well as implementation and performance analysis.
Initial Sustainability Assessment, Benchmarking and Risk Mapping
For those just starting out on the sustainability journey, an initial Sustainability Assessment may be a vital launching pad for building a sustainable organization- we start with a preliminary analytical research, including Benchmarking and Risk Mapping and continue with one-on-one meetings and site visits which are critical for understanding operating environments of the company/organization. Information incorporated into our analysis is based on facts, policies, statements, objectives, controversies and developments pertinent to the industry as well as the geo-political climate at hand effectively affecting the concerned organization.
Data gathered by our team is filtered through a series of criteria and associated indicators to illustratively produce our findings. Our initial assessment prescribes solutions to the challenges, identifying weaknesses and opportunities and gearing the organization towards meeting the GRI sustainability reporting Framework\'s requirements.
Our strategy approach integrates economic, environmental and social issues. We will help organization\'s sustainability vision and policy to shape and align stakeholders\' interests to achive goals. In other words, we\'ll help you map out where you are, where you want to go and how to get there in a sustainable manner.
