With an increased demand for disclosure on sustainability matters from stakeholders, the way in which a company reports can affect its relationships.

Transparent and robust reporting leads to the building of trust, improved ESG ratings in financial markets and consumer confidence, whereas poor or non-existent levels of reporting can have negative and brand damaging effects.
