Publication: Chapter in book/Conference proceedingChapter in edited volume


Sustainability reports, as a voluntary measure of companies and organisations,
are an important instrument for supporting corporate social responsibility (CSR).
The most recognized guidelines for sustainability reporting are the Global
Reporting Initiative Guidelines. They aim to enable a reasonable and balanced
presentation of a company's performance regarding economic, environmental,
and social aspects, to all stakeholders. The paper selects the sustainability reports
from four companies from the food industry, two from Europe and two from
Latin America. A qualitative analysis highlights to which degree sustainability
reporting in Europe and Latin America shows different results.
