Sustainable Reporting – A Solution – EconoBEE Newsletter – 13 October 2009

EconoBEE - BEE Points = Business
There is increasing pressure both internationally and locally for businesses to act as good corporate citizens, whereupon the aim is to reduce the environmental impact of their operations and contribute to the social development of surrounding communities whilst at the same time making sustainable profits.

Modern customers want to associate themselves with companies that strive to achieve the highest environmental standards, supports surrounding communities and use resources efficiently and effectively. Most businesses are thinking strategically, however the challenge for business remains in practically measuring the effectiveness of such initiatives and producing a comprehensive report.


Most large companies need to report on their sustainability initiatives to their shareholders, staff, customers, JSE, government and partners. This conference explains how to do so.

Practical Sustainable Development and Reporting

The aim of any business is to generate sustainable profits. The goal of sustainability is to achieve this while also minimising adverse impacts on society and the environment.

Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives form part of a larger strategy of sustainability.

The first EconoBEE Practical Sustainable Development and Reporting Conference, presented in conjunction with Kulima Solutions, will highlight the opportunities for your business from embracing the goals of sustainability.

This introduction to sustainable development reporting will include an overview of the key concepts of sustainability. We will explain how to identify indicators that will allow you to measure your sustainable development activities using indexes like the GRI. We will present case studies on how companies have successfully implemented a survey and reporting mechanism to produce a comprehensive sustainability report.
