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.
