12.6.1 Number of companies publishing sustainability reports (Tier II).
Corporate sustainability reporting is important for encouraging companies, especially large and transnational companies, to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle. UNCTAD and UNEP have developed a methodology for measuring SDG 12.6.1 which builds upon existing corporate sustainability reporting standards and frameworks as a basis for a minimum standard of core reporting indicators. In this context, UNEP and UNCTAD have developed guidance which facilitates the assessment of the quality of these reports through the integration of targeted sustainability information into the annual reporting cycle of companies, and which highlights progress in sustainability practices by companies.
