Sustainability professionals encounter many challenges on their reporting journey. How do you get started? What guidance should you follow, what are your material topics and how can you best engage your stakeholders? And how do you take bold steps to lead emerging trends in reporting and transparency?
To fulfil the ambitions of the Paris Agreement we need a much wider view of the economy, one which incorporates environmental, social and governance-related factors and rewards companies that do so. To help CEOs to achieve this, we have published the CEO Guide to climate-related financial disclosures.
There is a lot to consider when you are preparing for your next reporting cycle: you might be structuring your stakeholder engagement process, looking at your materiality assessment and engaging people throughout the organization. It’s also valuable to understand how your reporting compares to what your peers are doing in your industry, country and region.

Nine young designers have been named as finalists in the latest De Beers Group Shining Light Awards, a prestigious diamond jewellery design competition that showcases budding southern African talent.
The finalists, three from each of the company’s southern Africa producer countries of Botswana, Namibia and South Africa, were selected from more than 130 entries.
Their task was to create a jewellery collection reflecting this year’s design brief theme of ‘protecting nature’s beauty’, inspired by Forevermark’s brand values, and recognising the commitment of De Beers Group and Forevermark to conservation and sustainability.
De Beers Group has hosted a trio of conferences last week in the Botswana capital of Gaborone on sustainability, youth innovation and gender equity
The three events were all under the umbrella of the ‘impact week’ showcase – three days (Tuesday to Thursday) designed to position Botswana as the centre of gravity for the diamond industry and the benefits it can bring.
A host of high-profile speakers from government, industry and academia as well as fashion, the media and sports addressed the conferences.
Safety for employees and the communities they come from was the theme for De Beers Group’s Global Safety Day.
All round the Group, people held special sessions where the emphasis was on the need to be vigilant on safety – at work, on the way to and from work and at home. The company takes the view that safety does not stop at the mine gate but extends to its host communities.
CEO Bruce Cleaver told employees in a video message: “The only production we care about is safe production.” He said no diamond was worth a human life. And Stephen Lussier, Executive Vice-President, De Beers Group Consumer and Brand, stressed at a safety session in London that “safety is not someone else’s job”.
Fact: There's more Fair Trade Certified produce on store shelves during the holidays than any other time of the year
If your holiday plans are anything like ours, let’s just say we’ll be going through our fair share of sugar, vanilla, spices, squash, and… oh, come to think of it, let's just make a grocery list. It’s the time of year for gathering around the table, and with more Fair Trade Certified produce on store shelves than any other time of the year (hint, hint!), it's the perfect time to extend our gratitude to farming families around the world.
