Impact Management – Effective CSR Reporting for FMs

Impact Management – Effective CSR Reporting for FMs
26 November 2020

As companies reprioritise and restructure, more CSR reporting responsibilities are falling within the facilities team’s remit. But gathering a plethora of performance information can be a daunting task and reading a lengthy report is equally so.


Ever since the 2015 Paris Agreement, a landmark deal to combat climate change and prioritise a low-carbon future, corporate social responsibility reporting has been embedded in commercial life. This year, The World Business Council for Sustainable Development, together with its more than 200 global leading member companies, tightened its criteria for membership, focussing on the climate emergency, nature loss and inequality.

As well as being considered “the right thing to do”, good CSR credentials also affects recruitment and talent retention, as well as being an influencer in purchasing decisions and tendering. 

As the UK heads towards its 2050 net-zero carbon target, how can such a huge amount of data and metrics be best combined to make a useful and impactful report?
