By the early 2000s, leading companies were inundated with information requests by a new breed of investor. Large companies struggled to understand and to provide the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) information that nascent SRI [Socially Responsible Investors, now known as Sustainable and Responsible Investors] research and ratings organizations sought. As survey fatigue surfaced, OneReport was launched in 2003.
Helping companies overcome the many challenges and frustrations in understanding and communicating investor and stakeholder expectations is where we start. We know that it’s never easy to:
We listen. We embed tools to manage every aspect of the information, response and reporting process. We provide the bridge you need to close the gap between evolving investor and stakeholder expectations and your work.
As a former investor relations officer, I appreciate the importance of identifying real, long-term risks, opportunities, and value drivers for businesses. Knowing that we can help people and organizations no matter where they are in their sustainability journey – from those just beginning to globally recognized sustainability leaders – is a powerful motivator.
~ Janice Warren, OneReport President
We will continue to do our part to support the maturation of ESG metrics, information collection, and sustainability reporting, until it has the same rigor and impact as traditional financial metrics. We will continue to integrate the investor and societal expectations in OneReport. We will help organizations identify environmental, social, and governance risks and opportunities. We will continue to help companies navigate the maze of corporate responsibility frameworks, pilot the information capture and response process, and deliver data to raters and stakeholders.
