Net zero is a complex and multi-faceted subject. Reporting in this area is new, and often criticised for a lack of substance and clarity. But this is a topic that is too important to get wrong.
Here at Superunion, we’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about how companies can better communicate net zero strategies, and in turn build transparency and trust with a broad range of stakeholders.
In our latest white paper, Pathways to Net Zero, we have identified five attributes for best-practice net zero reporting. To cut through the sea of complexity and identify best-practice in net zero reporting, we reviewed a sample of FTSE 100 companies and others that are acting to set Science Based Targets (SBTs). There are clear parallels with corporate strategy reporting conventions that have been tried-and-tested within the annual report, but surprisingly many of these have not yet been adopted within net zero disclosure.
If you would like a copy of the report or would like to discuss how we could help with your corporate reporting and sustainability communications please do get in touch with Grace Wright, Chief Growth Officer: firstname.lastname@example.org.
