Environmental Benefits

Publishing a sustainability report takes time and effort, but it helps your organization track your supply chain impacts and costs, is a useful tool to declare your organization’s commitment to sustainability, and will help to track and report environmental improvements annually. Sustainability reports let employees, suppliers, and the public know that your organization is serious about achieving and documenting environmental improvements.
