Saying you’re a sustainable business isn’t enough anymore: you have to prove it. Increasingly, corporations are looking to third parties to quantify their social and economic impact. For example, the GRI reporting standards lists identifying your proportion of spending on local suppliers and significant indirect economic impacts are material reporting topics.
