Reporting enables companies to communicate clearly about the environmental and social performance of their supply chains. Doing so fulfils stakeholder expectations for transparency and helps companies to be recognised for progress.  

The Accountability Framework guides companies on how to report credibly across four key elements of progress:  

  • exposure and risk 

  • implementation and management systems 

  • traceability and control 

  • compliance and outcomes on the ground  

Your company can use the Accountability Framework to guide and streamline both public sustainability reporting and business-to-business reporting. Both are needed to meet stakeholder expectations and support credible claims about performance.   

The AFi has worked closely with leading reporting systems to align requirements and indicators for corporate reporting on topics within the Framework’s scope. This alignment reduces company reporting burdens and supports standardisation. As a result, companies may use existing reporting standards and platforms to report in accordance with the Accountability Framework. For example:
