Abstract

While there have been several innovations in the field of corporate sustainability over the last decade, many companies have found the activities involved in data gathering and analysis to support monitoring and reporting of sustainability information to be extremely time consuming and lacking in clear answers of risk and return. Corporate sustainability management (CSM) is gaining grounds recently. CSM looks at the dependence of a company's viability on its ability to create optimal profit without causing environmental damage and social problems in the community (Rahardjo, 2013). The purpose of this research is to establish a benchmarking framework that creates a systematised method for comparative,reporting of sustainability information in order to lower the barrier to entry for companies struggling to invest in sustainability.
