Development of a Sustainability Reporting Framework for Co-Located, Cross-Sector Organisations

This research aims to develop and test a sustainability reporting framework to help organizations of varying sizes, maturities, and sectors progress towards sustainability goals. The framework will be developed within the context of the South Ken ZEN+ initiative and will be tested through phased interviews and workshops with ERCG members. The framework aims to support context-specific learning, aggregate performance, accommodate data at different levels of quality, and increase efficiency by reducing resource duplication and reporting time.
