Sustainability Reporting

Organization(s) Toxics Use Reduction Institute
Project Description There has been a significant increase in sustainability reporting, voluntary public statements of a company's environmental and social performance. Companies are doing this for proof of good governance to stockholders, who are increasingly socially responsible investors (SRIs). Sustainability reporting also helps companies achieve preferred trading partner status and improve their relationship with regulators and neighbors. Whether or not a company is offering a sustainability report, the ability to do planning and reporting under the Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) places Massachusetts companies at the forefront of a key piece of sustainability progress.

At the TURI Continuing Education Conference in November, a sustainability reporting session explored the opportunities for companies that report under TURA to build on this advantage and to lead in an area of increasing challenge to those companies less experienced in TUR. Crane Inc., Rohm and Haas, and Madico reported different but exciting movement on this front. Vesela Veleva, a researcher at Citizen's Advisors, which manages a Socially Responsible Investment fund, described a burgeoning new sector that is attracting the interest of major corporations, their local facilities, and their suppliers.
