Corporate Social Reporting and Practices of International Hotel Groups

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

There is increasing pressure for corporations to disclose their sustainability management practices. Often this takes place through corporate social and environmental reports, and companies leading on good CSR practice now allow access to an audit of the information contained within these reports. A recent KPMG study (KPMG International, 2008) has shown that CSR reporting is becoming the norm in large corporations. Whereas in 2005 only 50% of companies included CSR in their reporting, the figure for KMPG’s 2008 report stands at almost 80%.
