Best practice sustainability reporting


Global freight forwarder ScanGlobal Logistics (SGL) wanted its first sustainability report to set a high bar, in line with its Science Based Targets commitment to an ambition aligned with limiting global warming to 1.5 °C and reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.


In doing so, SGL had become the first logistics provider in Denmark and one of only ten logistics companies globally to commit to the 1.5 °C target.

  • We conducted a gap analysis and materiality assessment in line with GRI requirements and the EU’s recommendations on “double materiality”

  • The assessment revealed eight material ESG topics which were then prioritised into four themes that formed the basis of SGL's 2020 sustainability report


  • We supported SGL in implementing the GRI Core requirements and the SASB standard for Air Freight & Logistics industry, and making separate disclosures for each

  • We brought all of this together into a best practice sustainability report that communicated a strong narrative for SGL’s ESG strategy and performance while meeting GRI Core requirements and compliance with sections 99a and 99b of the Danish Financial Statements Act.
