It is important for a brand to publish a strategic plan, targets or goals in order to drive improvements in their human rights and environmental impact. When brands publish their progress towards achieving human rights and environmental goals, it allows citizens to understand more about brands and how they can hold the brands to account to their goals.
Methodology

In this question you are being asked to identify whether the company releases annual, up-to-date disclosure of progress towards achieving its measurable, time-bound and long-term environmental commitments, targets or goals. Start by looking for a strategic plan published by the company, which could be a roadmap, vision, commitments, targets or goals, next look for evidence that they are reporting on their progress to achieving these goals.

Where to look for this information:
- Corporate Social Responsibility report
- Company documents
- Company policies
- Company websites
- Company code of conduct
- Parent company documents (only if the parent company is linked to from the brands website)
- Parent company policies (only if the parent company is linked to from the brands website)
- Parent company websites (only if the parent company is linked to from the brands website)
- Parent company code of conduct (only if the parent company is linked to from the brands website)

Good keywords for your searches include:
- Goals
- Targets
- Commitments
- Strategy
- Strategic plan
- Roadmap
- Vision

Things to watch out for:
- Must cover dates in the future
- If the brand has a 5 year strategy and they are at the end of that 5 years and reporting on progress then that is still acceptable.
