Responsibility reporting is considered vitally important to a majority of today’s leading companies. 52 of the Fortune 100 created reports, three produced integrated reports.
It may be framed in different ways—as sustainability, corporate social responsibility (CSR), corporate citizenship, or environmental, social and governance (ESG)—but, whatever you call it, it is growing in importance. And, it isn’t only for the giants. According to the IIRC, 76% of the S&P 500 do some Responsibility Reporting (Integrated Financial and Sustainability Reporting in the U.S., April 2013). No matter how you slice it, it’s clear: responsibility reporting has arrived.
