As usual, around this time of year, the #CSR Reporting Blog wishes all its followers "Happy Holidays". I think I said it best last year which I quoted from the year before. We love to recycle on the CSR Reporting Blog. Here goes. Again.
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, approve your reporting budget and select your reporting consultant.
Usually the #CSR Reporting Blog finds an innovative and humorous way to spread holiday cheer. But there is a limit to the number of alternative ways we can find to say Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings, Have A Cool Yule, Ho! Ho! Ho! and such other appropriate expressions. So this year we are going to go with the very inclusive: Holiday Wishes.
To all the #CSR Reporting Blog readers and everyone working in the #CSR and #Sustainability field to help make our world a better place, we wish you:
