Social Action

We can leverage 30 years of industry experience to develop your capacity and culture for sustainability, and create trust with your stakeholders through transparent performance and investor reports.

Engage, communicate and partner to create collective action and shared value.

How we can help

Investor reporting

Build trust with your stakeholders, whether they’re your investors, suppliers, business partners, guests, employees, or local communities. 

Our experienced team can support the entire production process to collate, verify, analyse and visualise data, to write and produce reports for investors, boards, directors, executives or external stakeholders. Align your investor reports with globally recognised sustainability standards (SASB, GRI, SDG, ISO) or securities exchange frameworks.

Stakeholder mapping and engagement

Engagement and partnership is necessary for collective action and success. We can map your stakeholders, create engagement plans to understand their needs, and establish a strategic approach for sustained partnership. 

We understand industry opportunities and best practice, and can help you develop bespoke community and traveller engagement programmes.

Develop Sustainability Capacity and Culture

Wherever you are on your journey, we can familiarise your organisation – from the bottom to the board – with the opportunities and challenges ahead. This will help you develop the culture and capacity necessary to achieve coordinated and sustained impact. 

Through face-to-face and online practical training courses, we can guide, coach and train across your value chain.

of Country

There are more than 476 million Indigenous Peoples, found in all regions of the world, from the Arctic to the tropical forests. They make up more than 6 per cent of our global population.


In the spirit of reconciliation, EarthCheck acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout the world and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Indigenous Peoples today.


EarthCheck acknowledges that Indigenous Peoples are guardians of the forests and biodiversity hotspots we all depend on. Research shows that lands managed by Indigenous Peoples, with secure rights, experience lower deforestation rates, store more carbon, hold more biodiversity, and benefit more people than other lands — including protected areas.


We recognise and support the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), the most comprehensive international instrument on the rights of Indigenous Peoples. The Declaration is a positive document that maps out a path for Indigenous Peoples to be free from discrimination and secure in their identities and life choices.
