edie launches free sustainability communications and reporting handbooks

The handbooks are free to download

With Covid-19 in mind, there has never been a time in living memory whereby business’s communications plans, engagement approaches and sustainability conversations have had to evolve more rapidly.

The communications handbook is designed to help you relay the importance of sustainability targets and initiatives to key stakeholders, and to build lasting engagement. Stakeholder groups covered include consumers, colleagues, investors, board members and suppliers.

This download is packed with a combination of advice from experts, top tips and updates on key legislation.

The second handbook in this series, developed in partnership with UL, covers sustainability reporting. Amid a perfect storm of new environmental science, changing legislation on climate action and corporate disclosure, and increased interest from investors, staff and consumers, businesses of all sizes and sectors are changing their approaches.

This handbook provides you with the advice and expert insight you need to implement modern, best-practices approaches to the development of your organization’s sustainability reporting, regardless of where you are on your reporting journey. It covers major reporting trends including integrated reporting, alignment with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the disclosure of climate and nature-related risks.

As well as case studies, exclusive quotes and need-to-know facts and stats, the Reporting Handbook 2021 includes an expert viewpoint from UL’s sustainability and ESG software executive Chris Saunby.



Some of the ideas explored in the handbooks will be discussed in more detail at edie’s ENGAGE 2021 online event, taking place on TODAY (Thursday 6 May) from 1-4pm BST. You can find out more about the event on the final page of each handbook or by clicking here.
