Building Investor Communication Channels

Integrated annual reports represent a repository of both financial and nonfinancial information that can be used for a variety of investor communications, with information customized for specific audiences while maintaining a consistent message.

Companies should use both existing and new channels to communicate the financial and sustainability impacts of their SDG strategies, including integrated reporting and the emerging trend of using SDG financing frameworks. Companies should also effectively engage and communicate with the investment value chain, including data and index providers, credit rating agencies, sell-side research analysts, and investors.
