Microphone How to link reporting to better decision-making

Thoughtful reporting improves business performance

Eric Hespenheide, chair of the Global Reporting Initiative, discusses with Ian Welsh how the globally-agreed language of the Sustainable Development Goals can help companies assess their impacts and how to communicate these, while improving corporate practices more generally. They debate how companies can report in a way that is engaging – clear metrics and reporting standards can help – and the importance of knowing your audience and tailoring messages accordingly. Hespenheide also outlines how the various reporting standards and guidelines that have developed are moving towards greater collaboration.
