SDGs – Wie gehen Schweizer Unternehmen damit um?

E 2018 SDG Poster without UN emblem Letter US

Die Sustainable Development Goals – kurz SDGs – wurden vor drei Jahren als Kernstück der Agenda 2030 von den Mitgliedstaaten der UNO verabschiedet und repräsentieren den globalen Fahrplan zu einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung weltweit.

Was bedeuten die SDGs für Schweizer Unternehmen? Und welchen Beitrag leisten sie zur Erreichung der globalen Nachhaltigkeitsziele? Diesen und weiteren Fragen gehen wir von Sustainserv im Rahmen unserer «SDG Pulsmesser»-Reihe nach. Nachdem wir 2017 über 100 Unternehmen befragten (Ergebnisse des «SDG Pulsmessers 2017»), analysierten wir 2018 die Berichterstattung der 115 grössten Schweizer Unternehmen zu den SDGs. 

Die Ergebnisse unserer Analyse stellen wir am 7. November in Zürich vor. Erfahren Sie aus erster Hand, welche Relevanz die SDGs für Schweizer Unternehmen haben und wie sie damit umgehen. Einblicke in die aktuelle «Best-Practice» im Umgang mit den SDGs erhalten Sie auch von John Revess, VP Group Head of Sustainability, von ABB. Zudem wird Till Berger vom Bundesamt für Raumentwicklung das Engagement des Bundes bezüglich SDGs vorstellen. Der anschliessende Apéro bietet darüber hinaus Gelegenheit, sich mit Gleichgesinnten auszutauschen.

Der Event findet auf Englisch statt.

Sustainserv Supports Award-Winning Integrated Report

Clariant Integrated Report Recognized Best Swiss Annual Report

8 October 2018

ClariantIR17In the recently released Swiss Annual Report Rating 2018, Sustainserv client Clariant received two impressive recognitions for their Integrated Report 2017: the Overall Winner for best annual report by a company listed in the Swiss Performance Index (SPI) and the number one report in the Value Reporting category.

Featuring the title “All in One,” Clariant’s Integrated Report 2017 incorporated both financial and non-financial aspects of its business into a compelling discussion of value creation. This comprehensive approach was highlighted in the laudatory awards speech given by Roman Schneider from the University of Zurich:

By reorganizing reporting, Clariant shows courage for innovation. The company is taking on a pioneering role in Integrated Reporting in Switzerland and is setting a new benchmark in value reporting and design. Clariant’s integrated report is groundbreaking and forward-looking.

A key element of the Integrated Report 2017 is the focus on topics that are material for Clariant and its stakeholders. These topics were identified during a comprehensive materiality assessment conducted in 2017. As a result, the report provides an in-depth view on Clariant’s long-term and holistic approach to value creation. In addition, with the business model continually at the core of the discussion, the report emphasizes how Clariant draws upon a multitude of resources to create added value for customers, employees, shareholders, and the environment.

Sustainserv has supported Clariant on its Integrated Reporting journey since 2016 by providing guidance on the application of the <IR> framework to Clariant’s specific context, developing an innovative reporting concept, identifying relevant performance indicators beyond classic financial reporting, establishing a robust data and information collection process, and offering extensive writing and editing services.

“We are excited to break new ground as we support Clariant in further developing its integrated reporting approach,” said Manuela Huck-Wettstein, Senior Consultant at Sustainserv and Project Manager for the Clariant reporting project. “By providing insights into how the company’s business model connects tangible and intangible factors, Clariant is able to transparently communicate its holistic approach to sustainable value creation to investors and shareholders.”
