The road ahead: The KPMG Survey of Corporate Responsibility Reporting 2017

Download the document.

This is the 10th survey since the first edition was published in 1993. This year, KPMG member firm professionals reviewed corporate responsibility (CR) and sustainability reporting from 4,900 companies in 49 countries and regions, making this the most extensive survey ever. The survey provides a detailed look at global trends in CR reporting and insights for business leaders, company boards, and CR and sustainability professionals.

It is designed to offer guidance on good practice to corporate professionals who assess and prepare their own organization’s CR reporting. It also serves as a guide to investors, asset managers and ratings agencies who now factor environmental, social and governance (ESG) information into their assessments of corporate performance and risk.

The survey is based on several months of research, with KPMG member firm professionals analyzing thousands of company financial reports, corporate responsibility reports, and websites. The number of companies and markets involved in the survey means that it is one of the most comprehensive and authoritative pieces of research on CR reporting available worldwide.
