In our first sharing & learning lunch in Lausanne on how to handle the UN GC Communication on Progress (COP) and other CSR reporting schemes, Nestlé shared their experience, struggles and successes.
Nestlé has developed and enlarged its reporting activities and contributes to transparency. Fondation Guilé presented their instrument to analyse the public reporting of companies and showed the Nestlé example. The event with some 30 participants showed clearly: reporting is a crucial issue for companies and it is important for the implementation of responsible Corporate behaviour. But SMEs face a big challenge to handle these requirements and “beginners” have to advance step by step. We will pursue this topic and will specially look for support and possible solutions for SMEs and new members.
