At Beyond Business, we spend a lot of our time on reports! We are always reading, analyzing, benchmarking, blogging about, discussing, lecturing about reports, chairing conferences about reports, or helping to develop and create reports for our clients around the world. We are simply passionate about reports!
We have been Organizational Stakeholders of the Global Reporting Initiative since 2006 and support the work done by GRI to advance sustainability reporting.
REPORTS WE HAVE WORKED ON
In 2013, we helped create 12 client reports, bringing our total since 2007 to 44 reports! For a detailed list of our reporting services, please click HERE. For a list of all the reports we have supported HERE.
We also serve as Data Partners for the GRI, collating reports published in our home market in Israel to support completeness of the GRI Sustainability Disclosure database. For more about this, please click HERE.
REPORTS PUBLISHED BY ISRAELI COMPANIES
In addition, as our home base is in Israel (although this does not limit us from working with clients as far afield as Australia, Brazil, the U.S., Eastern Europe and almost anywhere else in the world), we keep track of all the sustainability reports published in Israel.

The blog has been running since 2008 and posts are on average once or twice a week. See Elaine's CSR Reporting Blog HERE.
CONFERENCES AND SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS
Elaine Cohen chairs the annual Smarter Sustainability Reporting Conference in London, and in 2014, the conference will be in its third year. Always offering a fantastic line-up of speakers and debate about the most pressing and facinating aspects of Sustainability Reporting, the conference draws a large international crowd.

BEYOND BUSINESS OWN SUSTAINABILITY REPORTS
We have also published our own Sustainability Report, as we believe in practising what we preach. You can find our first GRI-checked Application Level A report here. We were delighted when this report won first place in the online reporting awards CRRA'12 in the Best SME Report category.
We are currently working on our next report to be published in 2014 (a little later than planned, but hopefully worth the wait!)
