Abstract

Our study describes how corporation-stakeholder interaction in environmental issues is reported in the sustainability reports of three Finnish corporations. More specifically, we show how the interaction is described between the corporation and its stakeholders in environmental reporting of three different firms operating in different business branches: financing, transport and energy, over the timeframe of five years. Our study makes two contributions. First, it shows that stakeholders were primarily addressed in environmental reporting through corporations promoting environmental responsibility among stakeholders and through corporations committing to sustainability through different stakeholders. Second, it shows that corporations on different business branches share surprising similarities in environmental reporting.
