Happy Holidays!

Inspired by this Happy Holidays post by Yvonne DeVita on the Lipsticking blog, about the commercialization of the season's festive time, and in the tradition of the CSR Reporting Blog Happy Christmas Post (2009), and the Seasons Greetings Post (2011), I would like to wish all the CSR Reporting Blog readers:
Happy Holidays!

This is a time to reflect on the joys of life and the joys of publishing Sustainability Reports. A time to be merry and indicator-driven. This is a time to eat well and edit well, engage with friends and dialogue with all stakeholders, think about what's important to you and call it material, recommit to your higher purpose and approve your reporting budget. 

However, for those of you who will not be having holidays this month, in the interests of diversity and inclusion, this is also for you.
