    Abstract [en]

    There has been an increased interest in sustainability reporting from corporations and their various stakeholder groups during the last decades. Due to the increased interest more corporations has begun to establish sustainability reports. Unlike financial reporting there are no formal requirements for sustainability reporting. This implies freedom but also somedifficulties. Corporations have the power to choose how to report and how to communicate the sustainability reporting but it also requires some complicated decisions. Depending on how corporations choose to handle their sustainability reporting, different effects can be obtained. Therefore, it is important for corporations to have an awareness of what they want the reporting to generate. The purpose of this study is to describe and analyse the causes and intentions of Swedish small and medium sized companies sustainability reporting. Further, the aim is to analyse how corporations adapt their sustainability reporting to their desired target group, in terms of format and communication channel. The study focuses on customers and the company management, as well as on increased competitiveness and sustainable development.A digital questionnaire was designed and sent by email to 384 corporations. Out of these 63 answered the questionnaire, which resulted in a response rate of 16.4 percent. The statistical processing consisted of correlation and regression analysis. The result of the study demonstrate that small and medium sized companies generally has a lack of structure in theirsustainability reporting. This may lead to a loss of positive effects that reporting can cause. The conclusion is that corporations do not make use of the freedom they possess, although companies can have a lot to gain from developing clear sustainability strategies.

Yet there are strong opinions about a group’s formation on the distribution of gender, age, education and ethnicity. There are speculations of a possible relationship between diversity and sustainability reporting. The growing demands of such reporting increases the interest to determine which factors promote sustainability reporting. This study intends to explore theCorporate Environmental Disclosure (CED) of sustainability reporting. Currently there are no mandatory standard for sustainability reporting, such information is public though and exposures in media. Media compares the reports to public expectations and has the power to affect a company’s reputation. The relationship between board diversity, environmentalreporting and media exposure is hence an area worth exploring.The main intent of this study was to describe and analyse whether board diversity affects CED. Further the intent was to explore whether CED affects media exposure. The sampling for the study consisted of multinational companies. Of 447 examined, 202 formed the basis. The results of the study established by structural equation modeling, stated that board diversity is not associated with CED. Yet the study indicates that CED affects media exposure. External variables that were found to have effect on board diversity, CED or media exposure were firm size and geographical
