Sustainability Reporting & Policies

We report on our material issues and our contribution to the SDGs because they matter to our stakeholders. We seek to be as transparent as possible in order to earn trust, meet the needs of customers and learners, and share our goals for making our company and our world better.

We developed our 2016 report in line with the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 guidelines, including the media sector supplement. As a founding signatory to the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) in 2000, we consider its ten principles in our reporting process. Our report serves as our Communication on Progress and outlines our contribution to the SDGs. View our GRI/UNGC/SDGs content index.

Pearson’s 2016 Annual Report includes a summary of the issues covered in this report and, as required by 2013 amendments to the UK Companies Act, comprises a separate strategic report with disclosures on human rights, gender diversity, and greenhouse gas emissions.
