The industrial or economic sector, the size of the local community, the market and availability of your products and services, the geographic location of your organization, its main activity, the management structure, the legacy, the mission, vision and values, the level of ambition and management motivation are only some of the variables that influence the decision towards choosing one non-financial / sustainability reporting framework or another.
Different non-financial reporting frameworks come with different levels of difficulty; therefore the level of maturity in reporting determines the reporter (i.e. the organization) to adopt one or even more reporting frameworks at once, depending on how complex they are and how experienced is the reporting organization.
The non-financial reporting process requires hard work and it takes months before it is completed as there is a lot of data to be collected, analyzed, compared against the context and checked internally. These data need to cover the entire activity and illustrate as close to reality as possible the actual economic, social and environmental impacts. As a non-financial report is meant to be public, all information become available to a wider audience and can be assessed by authorities, employees, clients, consumers or competitors.
That is why the final document must reflect accurately the short-, medium- and long-term impacts of the organization, and its real contribution (neither diminished, nor over claimed) to the sustainable development of the community where its impacts occur.
Our Mentor@ programme is designed in such a way that it guides organizations in taking a well-informed decision, opting for one reporting framework that best suites their needs and using it throughout the process. The programme is flexible so it can support organizations that are:
first-time reporters and have no experience in disclosing non-financial information
willing to increase the level of transparency
legally obliged to report such data
willing to move from an empirical performance evaluation to a standardized framework
interested to outsource the non-financial reporting efforts, but don’t know what type of competencies they need to bid for
to increase the reputation level
interested to learn what are the major differences between various reporting frameworks, each with their pros and cons
willing to improve the level of organizational trust and loyalty among their employees and communities
interested to expand the sustainability practices across the entire supply chain
willing to move to GRI Standards after they have used the GRI G4 reporting framework
keen to reposition or gain a competitive advange on the market.
Mentor@ is a flexible, Do-It-Yourself-With-A-Little-Help platform that comes with various complexity degrees and different levels of maturity in non-financial / sustainability reporting.
The first step in the process is a needs analysis. Although we charge for the service, we later on deduct the value from the overall Mentor@ package that results as suitable for your organization.
Next, we set a road map and propose a plan that is acceptable to the reporting team and/or the management team.
Once we agree on the activity calendar, we meet weekly or monthly (depending on the complexity of the process), check and assess the collected data, their level of conformity with the reporting framework chosen by the organization, and propose a supplementary list of indicators as appropriate.
When the reporting team has finalized a first draft, our consultants check it and make a series of recommendations as needed.
Is designed for mature organizations that have already gained substantial experience in non-financial / sustainability reporting and are ready to abide by the newest and most complex reporting tools: GRI Standards, CDP and United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
