What is a benefit of a company publishing a sustainability report?

A company may undertake corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities to provide benefits such as increased stakeholder support, improved goodwill and image, better employee relations, an ability to source raw materials more cheaply and under good working conditions. The benefits companies see from worldwide reporting on CSR and SMEs may include increased customer loyalty and improved access to new markets.

Companies publish sustainability reports because it is a way for them to communicate their CSR activities and be more transparent about their impacts, by providing the information in an accessible format. This gives customers and stakeholders an insight into their operations which could increase brand recognition and maintain stakeholder interest.
