Reporting & Rating

Numerous stakeholder groups are interested in how sustainability is concretely implemented and assessed in companies (e.g. financial investors, customers, suppliers, employees, politics, science, unions, churches, non-governmental organizations). To this end, companies present their sustainability achievements in processes and key figures, for example, in the sustainability report or in numerous surveys. Also outside companies, stakeholders create comparability reports of companies through sustainability ratings, rankings and prizes. At econsense, member companies exchange information on the measurability of sustainability and drive towards continuous development of the topic in conversation with stakeholders.
