Fresh thinking on structure and metrics helped the Lafarge sustainability report to meet goals for year-on-year improvements and earn GRI A+ status.
Lafarge, the world’s number 1 cement producer, has a firm target for year-on-year improvements in its sustainability report, based on independent third-party assessments. Corporate Citizenship’s insights on metrics, structure and copywriting have helped Lafarge’s sustainability reporting to earn GRI A+ status and provided a roadmap for on-going development.
Over a four-year period, Corporate Citizenship has helped Lafarge to gain GRI A+ status for its annual corporate responsibility report. For the 2009 Lafarge sustainability report, we identified metrics that would enable the report to comply with the improved GRI G3 Index A+, providing a roadmap for future improvements. Through advice on the structure and copywriting of the report, we were able to ensure that this greater depth of information was communicated clearly and purposefully.
