Sustainability Report

Sustainability reporting is a vital step to achieving  smart, sustainable growth that combines long-term business growth with environmental consciousness and social justice.  For the information to be meaningful and useful, it is crucial that companies report material topics that matter most to their business and stakeholders.

Assessing materiality and forming a clear reporting boundary are thus essential to a sustainability report. Reporters should prioritise their topics and only focus on those that significantly affect their sustainable performance and stakeholders.

The Materiality Matrix in the GRI Standards is a very useful and efficient tool for companies conducting their first materiality assessment, and for those who are looking to revise and update their assessment process as well.

In the long term, materiality assessments also serve as a strategic business tool to spot possible improvements, by applying a sustainability lens to business development. A broad and inclusive materiality process with internal and external factors can deliver valuable benefits to the company above and beyond compliance with any sustainability reporting regulations.

At Alaya we aim to make a positive, long-term contribution to society and the environment. We advise clients on sustainability issues – helping them to embed sustainability into corporate reporting and daily operations – and we practice what we preach by constantly striving to  improve our own performance.
