SUSTAINABILITY REPORTING PAST, PRESENT AND TRENDS FOR THE FUTURE

ABSTRACT
Corporations are facing increasing pressures to be accountable and transparent, and to disclose a wide variety of information about activities, including their sustainability. Sustainability is an emotionally-charged topic and its meaning may differ between individuals and corporations. For the purposes of this project, I define sustainability reporting as the communications which corporations make concerning their corporate social-responsibility (CSR) activities, including social and environmental impacts in addition to financial performance. This research discussed “Sustainability Reporting Past, Present and Trends for the future. It is divided into five chapter. In which the chapters contain introduction, literature review, research design and methodology , data presentation and analysis, conclusions, recommendations and summary.  The researcher made use of both primary and secondary data, structured questionnaires were the methods used for the collection of primary data, and secondary data were also collected from textbook and various research materials.  The researcher used population of 140 selected randomly. But using Taro Yamani, a sample size of 4 was used. In chapter four table was used as a statistical tool for analyzing the data.  In which he recommended that the If sustainability information is included in financial statements, it will be in separate sections (with separate assurance, if any). Non-financial sustainability information will become more standardized, but due to its nature, will not achieve the level of completeness that we have for financial information. Consequently, corporations will continue to provide sustainability data that is tailored to their specific circumstances and recommendated that  Provide a management tool to help continuously evaluate and improve sustainable performance.  Promote a true picture of the organization. The more candid the report, the more positive its effect on the organization's reputation. Stakeholders will feel confident that the organization will strive to achieve its goals over the long term.
