One of the best avenues for receiving qualitative and substantive feedback on your sustainability report.
The Reporting Peer Review Program is a platform for companies to exchange and receive feedback, share best practices, and improve their corporate sustainability reporting practices.
The purpose of the Reporting Peer Review Program is to share best practices and improve reporting on 10 UNGC Principles in Canada. A similar framework has been successfully implemented in the Dutch, Nordic, French, and UK Global Compact networks.
- Exchange and receive insightful, substantive, and genuine feedback from your industry peers and sustainability practitioners.
- Share best practices with companies from different industries and backgrounds.
- Benchmark your company’s reporting practices and sustainability initiatives with others in your industry.
- Be recognized for taking the initiative to improve sustainability reporting & transparency in Canada.
Bell is an active participant in the Network & Reporting Peer Review Program!
”This kind of in-depth feedback from peers and non-peers is very helpful for improving the quality and content of our report going forward, and I look forward to participating annually… I would recommend this to any company, Canadian or otherwise, looking to improve their CR Reporting.””
Senior Manager - Corporate Responsibility and Environment at Bell Canada
Export Development Canada found the program to be pain-free, effective and valuable!
”We found this a valuable, effective way to get feedback on our CSR Report from corporate peers who understand the standards for good quality CSR reporting. The Global Compact Network Canada made the process pain-free. While we all skim through CSR reports, this process pushes you to do a thorough, in-depth review and compare them to your own. I highly recommend participation by companies looking for a tool to get meaningful input on their reports.”
