What Companies Say…

…about Comparability

“There is good practice across any sector and if you talk about good sustainability practice then it shouldn’t just be restricted to one industry. We like to compare ourselves with other industries as well as our own industry.”

“Our social performance and our relationships with your neighbors and community are not industry-specific, so there is an opportunity for us to learn and compare with those outside of our industry. However, the indicators are more difficult to compare. Companies sometimes measure things in different units and report in different ways depending on the customs within the company.”

“Even with guidelines, there is still a lot of choice in how you disclose what your consumption patterns are. It is a challenge to compare two different companies or multiple companies for that matter.”

“Yes, particularly for me, it is important see beyond our reports and make sure they’re complete and how we compare with our peers.”
