For those tasked with communicating their organization’s sustainability information, these are challenging times. What to communicate and to whom, and which tools to use, always have been pain points. Add to that the recent increases in the types and volume of data; the number of reporting frameworks, standards and recommendations to handle it; and the interest from disparate stakeholder audiences with different needs — all without a significant increase in people dedicated to reporting.
