SIRAN analysts have produced a joint Analyst Statement on Sustainability Reporting. This statement currently represents 23 investment firms with over $435 billion in assets under management to:
- articulate common expectations for corporate reporting of social and environmental performance information.
- provide answers to companies’ most frequent questions on reporting.
- suggest ways companies can enhance the usefulness and credibility of their reports.
This statement encourages companies to produce annual sustainability reports and to use the Global Reporting Initiative’s (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines to increase the credibility, comparability, and utility of this type of reporting.
In the statement analysts make the commitment that a company’s GRI report is the first place investors and research institutions will look for sustainability information. The statement also suggests that companies refer to the GRI’s reporting principles as they prepare reports, which include: transparency, inclusiveness, auditability, completeness, relevance, sustainability context, accuracy, neutrality, comparability, clarity, and timeliness.
