Annual Review of the State of CSR in Australia and New Zealand 2017 released

The annual State of CSR series is the largest ongoing study of CSR practices, trends and capabilities in this part of the world.

This year’s report explores the theme of “Re-imagining Sustainable Value”. It builds on the ground work from the 2016 Annual Review, which examined the uptake of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Australia and New Zealand.

This year’s research presents the most up to date insights on how companies are addressing the SDGs, CSR priorities for the year ahead, trends in sustainability reporting and much more. Some key insights include:

  • More than half of respondents think sustainability reporting should be mandatory.
  • 35 percent of respondents say that sustainability reporting has improved investor engagement.
  • Strengthening stakeholder relationships remains the number one priority in Australia.
  • Managing the impacts of regulation is the top priority in New Zealand.
