2016/17 reporting

We are pleased to announce that all 180 Major Player organisations submitted their 2016/2017 Climate Change Reports. Thank you to all SSN Members who participated in completing this year’s reports and producing such a successful response.

What happens next?

Publication of Climate Change Reports

All reports will be published on the SSN website by 31st January.

Analysis Report

The analysis of the Climate Change Reports is now underway. We are aiming to publish an analysis report on 31st January. This report will mainly focus on the quantitative data relating to corporate emissions.


SSN member events

This year’s analysis will include a series of sector engagement events to provide opportunities for SSN Members to participate in the analysis and use of the Climate Change Reports.

The SSN team will provide feedback based on analysis of the Climate Change Reports. The events will then allow SSN Members to contribute to this analysis, explore areas for improvement, and identify recommendations. The events are also being designed to share examples of good practice gleaned from the reports. More information about these events will be sent directly to SSN Members.


Feedback on reports

General feedback on the reports will be published by 31st March. This will be in the form of a single feedback document where key themes and issues with the quality of reporting will be addressed. No individual feedback will be provided this year other than in exceptional circumstances.


Functional review

To inform the functional review of the reporting process, a survey was carried out in December 2017 to asking for feedback on the reporting process, online reporting platform, guidance and support provided.  The findings of this, plus comments gathered by the SSN team over the reporting period, will be used to inform a series of recommendations for the functional improvement of reporting. This functional review will be published by 31st March.


The deadline for Climate Change Reporting is next Thursday, 30 November – don’t leave it too late!
