Environmental transparency & sustainability reporting

Back in August, I reblogged a post on ‘Using Twitter to keep up with Green‘. Now I present to you how I’ve used it. I participated in a Twitter Chat yesterday with Yalmaz Siddiqui, Office Depot’s Senior Director, Environmental Strategy to discuss environmental transparency and its role in sustainability reporting. It was my first Twitter chat and I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of it.

My thoughts on the Twitter chat?

These two:

1. Simplicity: In my recent post ‘Harmon(e)y with environment‘, I mentioned how the whole sustainability jargon made it difficult for me to understand certain things. Simplicity is one of the ways to be transparent.

2. Standard: Let’s say you have two sustainability reports on your table. Will it be easier to understand or compare these two if they follow a particular format or otherwise? Of course it will be easier to read if it follows a particular format. This way you’ll know which places to look for and you’ll know what exactly you will find there. There will not be any reading between the lines.

Here’s the Storify summary of the chat ( a RECAP of the Thursday’s Twitter Chat on #Transparency with @OfficeDepot @CSRWire and @TriplePundit):
