Sustainability Excellence is the leading provider of sustainability reporting services in the Arab region.
Nearly half of the +100 companies, governments and other organisations that have undertaken sustainability reporting in the region are current or previous clients of Sustainability Excellence. This includes the first company, the first government entity, and the first non-profit to adopt sustainability reporting in the region using the leading international Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines.
We are the GRI’s formal “Data Partner” for the region. We officially launched the G4 version and the GRI Standards of the guidelines for the Arab region, and led the translation of the G4 guidelines into Arabic. We track the sustainability reporting of every reporting organisation in the region, allowing for instant benchmarking of hundreds of data points on dozens of the most critical sustainability performance indicators.
Our clients continuously set new standards for quality and innovation in sustainability reporting in the region. In addition to earning even greater respect and trust of their most critical stakeholders, they also frequently win the top national and regional awards for sustainability reporting.
Our sustainability reporting services include:
- Full sustainability reports
- Summary sustainability reports
- “Integrated” reports (combination of annual report and sustainability report)
- Sustainable Finance reporting (Green Bonds, Equator Principles)
- Online reporting
- Support for report launches
- Tie-in of sustainability reporting to ongoing social media messaging and corporate communications
Our sustainability reporting includes establishing or building upon a sustainability framework that guides not only sustainability reporting but overall sustainability strategy and management, performance benchmarking for key performance indicators, capacity building and training of an internal sustainability team, and other benefits that go well beyond sustainability reporting.
Sustainability reporting is ultimately meant to help enhance risk and opportunity identification, drive corporate performance gains, and enhance engagement and relationships with stakeholders.
