One of the world’s leading materials companies wanted to rethink its reporting. It saw an opportunity to better articulate how its products supported positive environmental and social impact, and needed to act on criticism that past reports were too long and lacked strategic focus.
After working with BWD to complete a double materiality assessment, the organization engaged us on a three-year contract to transform its disclosure. In collaboration with their sustainability and corporate communications teams, we applied established reporting principles to reorganize report content so it aligned with stakeholder expectations and reduced the internal approval burden.
Achieving best-in-class status meant enhancing the rigor of reporting on stakeholder value creation – such as how its products support the circular economy. It also involved preparing for the transition from SASB and TCFD to the IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards, as well as ensuring compliance with the EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive.
