If you have a CSR platform in place, you may already be reporting your ethical, environmental, philanthropic and economic impact. Communicating sustainability initiatives is good for any organization but essential for ones that deal with misinformation and loud adversarial voices, which is often the unfortunate reality for the agriculture industry.
CSR reporting allows you to show real progress and commitment to improvement. A good CSR report should be transparent, flexible and have all the important details. Your first CSR report will set the baseline for all future reporting so it’s important to make sure you have all the information you need. The report should contain data for all of your organization’s key sustainability metrics. It should include important data, even ones that may not meet established goals for the set time period.
