To satisfy stakeholder requirements, e.g. legal, clients’ or financial analysts’ demands for transparency on companies’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and sustainability performance it is best to employ a synergy of integrated sustainability management, reporting and third party assessments.

This practical guide explains these differences and provides guidance on how to go through each process and benefit from the synergy between them.
