Ipieca's annual survey identifies trends in the sustainability reporting practices of Ipieca member companies.

Ipieca has been conducting reporting surveys since 2012, enabling us to analyse trends and enable peer-learning across our global membership.

The results provide an overview of current practices, identify widely used performance indicators and emerging trends, allow companies to learn from their peers, and improve industry communication around sustainability issues. The results also cover a range of cross-cutting topics for Ipieca and its members, including just transition, supply chain and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
