12.6.1: Companies sustainability reports

Number of companies publishing sustainability reports


There is no accurate estimate on the number of companies publishing sustainability reports. Danish companies of a certain size (the so called enterprise classes ¿Large C" and ¿D") are obliged to include Corporate Social Responsibility in their annual reports. This includes reporting on environmental and climate initiatives, so it can be assumed that these companies should be counted as publishing sustainability reports. There are approximately 1100 companies in those classes, so this can be considered a lower limit for this figure. Statistics Denmark is looking into whether there are sources that can be used to produce a more accurate estimate.
