Oxford Brookes University: Corporate Environmental Performance

Oxford Brookes University: Corporate Environmental Performance

Topics
Description

With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development it is of high relevance to track and assess the contributions of business to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This project is a partnership between the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), WikiRate, and the Bertelsmann Stiftung, to engage the next generation of business leaders in supporting and advancing the SDGs by proactively identifying, aggregating, analyzing, and sharing the achievements of companies in support of the SDGs as reported in sustainability and Communication on Progress Reports (COPs).

By analyzing company performance through annual company sustainability reports and COP reports submitted to the UN Global Compact, students will contribute to understanding corporate sustainability and issues of subjectivity, contextualization of data, and comparability.

Some key business themes:

  • GHG emissions

  • Risks and opportunities due to climate change

  • Air quality

  • Water quality

  • Sustainable water withdrawals

  • Improved water efficiency through application of 5R principles: reduce, reuse, recover, recycle, replenish

  • Protection of water-related ecosystems and biodiversity

As you engage in researching company sustainability performance here, we encourage you to read through and contribute to the conversations below. You can also create threads of discussion on your Research Group page to communicate directly with the WikiRate team and your fellow researchers.

The WikiRate team have researched some companies on these metrics, these examples may help to clarify how the metric data should be added and the types of comments that should support each value.

For further guidance see support, tips and trouble-shooting below.
