As the number of companies compiling sustainability reports grows, the content of those reports is evolving to include more focus on water impacts and supply chain information, according to corporate sustainability officials and consultants.

More companies are including information about environmental performance in their annual financial reports, partly due to pressure from institutional investors who want more disclosure of non-financial risks.
 
Sustainability reporting provides corporate disclosure on environmental, social, and governance performance and management, including strategies and goals.
