This summary contains input from six members on approaches to making sustainability data more transparent. We begin this summary by looking at whether members make their sustainability data transparent and their drivers for doing so. Next, we examine the importance of various areas of sustainability data itself and where members currently stand on the transparency of data in those areas. From there, we look at sources of sustainability data and channels and formats for sharing that data. We close with a look at how members are ensuring the quality and accuracy of their sustainability data.
