G&A’s 5-Step Process is a proven solution for publicly-traded and privately-owned companies publishing their first sustainability report, as well as those firms looking to enhance and expand upon their existing reporting. Wherever you are on your sustainability journey, we have the knowledge, expertise, experience and drive to take your sustainability reporting to the next level.
Depending on your company’s needs and progress, we are able to guide the way in publishing a report that utilizes frequently-used reporting frameworks, standards, and initiatives, including incorporation of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Standards, Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) Standards, recommendations from the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the International Integrated Reporting Council (IIRC).
We produce corporate and institutional reports that are investor-focused, using many of the same underlying datasets. Our reports tell your story in a way that maximizes return on investment through moving the scores and ratings with the important ESG data providers (i.e. Bloomberg, MSCI, Sustainalytics, ISS, S&P Global, and more).
G&A will meet with your company’s team to discuss benchmarking and learn more about where the company is on its sustainability journey, to strategically set in place the foundations of our engagement.
G&A will analyze ESG investor-focused frameworks, standards, and data providers with industry-specific methodologies. Additional benchmarking will be done on leading peer and customer disclosure. This step will result in a targeted list of material topics for your company.
G&A will identify material gaps in the company’s existing public disclosure and meet with internal subject matter experts (SMEs) in an attempt to address and close critical gaps.
The G&A team will write and edit drafts of the sustainability report. This step is an interactive, iterative process, with multiple rounds of review with your company’s team and SMEs.
G&A’s graphic design team will create and finalize the sustainability report in alignment with your company’s brand, resulting in a comprehensive PDF document for publication.
*G&A’s team offers optional additions and content expansions for roll-out of the report publication. For example, we offer services for launching fully-designed company website sustainability landing pages, or “microsites”.
