Impact Reports: Driving Corporate Responsibility and Generating Positive Results

Impact reports are crucial documents that outline a company's social and environmental impact, both positive and negative. They enable companies to understand their impact and make more sustainable decisions, communicate their commitment to sustainability to stakeholders, and meet legal requirements.

"Our annual impact report is an essential tool for holding ourselves accountable to our stakeholders and the world at large. It ensures that we stay true to our mission of creating a better, more sustainable future." - Tim Cook, CEO of Apple.

"Our impact report has been critical to our success as a socially responsible company. It has helped us identify areas where we can improve and provided a roadmap for achieving our sustainability goals." - Ajay Banga, Executive Chairman of Mastercard.

CEOs cite three main benefits from Impact Reports -

  • Help companies understand their impact and make more sustainable decisions.
  • Communicate a company's social and environmental responsibility to stakeholders.
  • Meet legal requirements and regulations related to impact.
