Sustainability Reporting Case Study - Alliance Data

Since 2012, we have supported Alliance Data in the development of their CR Report. This has included everything from initial development of their CR strategy and focus areas (including materiality assessment), content collection, goal setting, copy writing, and GRI gap analysis to ensure Alliance Data’s reporting is aligned with best practice standards.

They have recently been awarded first place in PR Daily’s 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility Awards in the category “One time/Annual Report’.
