Sustainability Reports

What is Sustainability Reporting?

A sustainability report is a document published by a company or organization about the economic, environmental, and social impacts that result from its everyday activities. A sustainability report also presents the organization's values and governance model and demonstrates the link between its strategy and its commitment to a sustainable economy. Sustainability reporting enables organizations to consider their effects on a wide range of sustainability issues, enabling them to be more transparent about the risks and opportunities they face.

ORNL seeks to promote sustainable practices that are especially beneficial to those communities who are in the greatest need of economic outcomes from energy conservation. To promote regional outreach and involvement, the ORNL Sustainability Report is published and distributed electronically to all ORNL staff and associates, as well as to nine surrounding communities (city/county governments and educational institutions). The report's purpose is to share the positive benefits that can be experienced by all entities that commit to sustainable practices, energy conservation, and the reduction of long-term risks due to carbon emissions.

Here are the ORNL Sustainability Reports. The documents are viewable and downloadable with Adobe Reader.
