ABSTRACT
The article emphasizes on the need to involve stakeholders more actively with a company's progress. Corporate social responsibility reporting is on the rise, but reporting processes are still evolving. Stakeholder communication is the key. Companies can simply add a couple of questions to their list to gauge what environmental and social issues are critical for stakeholders. The critical message is that stakeholders have to be involved at every stage of the reporting process to create a sense of openness and also to understand what information really matters to the stakeholders.
