As climate change continues to have a bigger impact on the world, it’s more important than ever for companies to be good corporate citizens and to show their stakeholders that they are doing well by doing good.
At Narrative Labs, our team of English copywriters and translators in The Hague help companies worldwide to develop and perfect their sustainability communications strategies. With our extensive experience in CSR and sustainability communications, you can count on us to communicate your long-term environmental vision the right way through well-written English- content and quality translations.
A sustainability report outlines the broader social, environmental and economic impacts a company makes from its activities. It represents an opportunity to communicate your values and your vision of how you plan to reduce your environmental footprint and make a positive impact on your community and wider society. Effective sustainability reporting is also essential to create transparent about your operations and build trust with stakeholders.
Many companies in the Netherlands publish their sustainability reports and CSR reports in Dutch but also want to translate them to English. They want to make sure the reports are easily understood by an English-speaking audience (investors in the United States, for example) without losing the essence of their message.
As native-English writers, we can help with every step of this journey, from translations to editing and proofreading. We’ll make sure the final product is clean and crystal clear. Just like your sustainability vision!
Environmental writing forms a key part of modern corporate communications. While sustainability reporting tends to be more technical, companies still want to communicate their values with a wider, more general readership. For example, you might want to:
- Show how you support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
- Highlight progress in your emissions reduction targets
- Communicate how you’re addressing the climate crisis
- Publish a press release about a sustainable initiative you’re undertaking or a new environmentally friendly product
- Use social media or online posts to show a wider audience your values as a company
Striking the right balance can be a challenge for any marketing or communications manager. You need to bridge the gap between your readers and the at-times complex climate science. And to further complicate things, that bridge will change depending on your readers’ various attributes.
However, getting this right can bring a substantial return on investment by bolstering your company’s green credentials and making it clear to your stakeholders what you’re doing to make the world a better place. And this is what doing well by doing good is all about. At Narrative Labs, you can leave us to do the talking while you focus on what you do best.
