Global Leadership Network (GLN) Open Access Tool
CSR Strategies and Reporting: this product shows the business benefits of sustainability by helping companies be more strategic about the CSR activities they choose to undertake and to achieve the greatest benefits of these through effective communication. The driving principle is that CSR is not only about improving a company’s reputation, but it also helps to target efforts, improve efficiency, allocate resources, anticipate risks, and identify new business opportunities. With this in mind, the program provides tools and guidance to companies in designing integrated strategies and action plans, and helps them improve their transparency through guidance on best practice sustainability reporting, such as the Global Reporting Initiative. In particular, the program aims to promote better performance and reporting around community development, gender, labor, human rights, biodiversity, and climate change and more effective harnessing of the potential of the SRI market to reward companies who do so successfully.
