REPORT: Sustainability reporting has inadvertently become a burden for organisations

According to a new report, seven in ten sustainable business leaders believe the resource spent on reporting administration is affecting progress towards sustainability goals.

The report by Mitie of 500 sustainability decision makers also revealed over half of respondents report that reporting efforts require too much admin.

46% of sustainable business leaders feel that their business spends too much time and budget on reporting.

At FuturePlus we believe that all organisations, not just the most sustainable ones, should have the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to more sustainable practices, as well as access the necessary support and guidance to make a positive impact.

FuturePlus advisors provide support and guidance to help you along every step of your sustainability journey. Book a demo here.
