An analysis of the environmental reporting process: the relationship between the material and reported aspects in the apparel industry

Presentation by guest researcher Doctor Idoya Ferrero-Ferrero, Universitat Jaume, Financial Economics and Accounting, Spain.

The principle of materiality is playing an increasing role in the sustainability world as the essential filter for determining the content of sustainability reporting which should be useful to key decision makers. The main objective of this study is to explore the consistency between material environmental aspects and the indicators included in the sustainability report. This study identifies several weaknesses of current materiality analysis and suggests improvements to enhance the credibility of stakeholders on sustainability reporting.
