OBATA designs 50th ESG & Sustainability Report

ESG report design process has helped companies share their positive impacts on employees, local communities, and the world
August 11, 2022 – St. Louis, Missouri – OBATA, a creative agency with nearly 75 years of serving clients throughout North America and internationally, was recently engaged to design its 50th client report on ESG and sustainability. OBATA designs and develops ESG reports for corporations of all sizes including Fortune 500 firms, both public and private, across industries that include technology, infrastructure, transportation, financial services, manufacturing, and more.
For many clients, OBATA has created ESG reports spanning a number of years, many coinciding with the development of their annual reports, also designed by OBATA. “With the experience of producing literally hundreds of annual reports over the years, OBATA is well positioned to leverage our capabilities in design, photography, copywriting, and production to bring these ESG stories to life,” commented Rich Murphy, president of OBATA.
While many companies are actively producing and publishing ESG or sustainability reports, many more are just now beginning to tip their toes in the water and are not sure exactly how to get started. OBATA has helped numerous companies produce their inaugural ESG or sustainability reports. Paul Gassett, vice president at OBATA, stated, “From benchmarking to organizing the data, it’s helpful to have a partner who has guided dozens of companies through the process of sharing their ESG narratives and results.”
With a focus on strategy as a key component of any successful communication, OBATA has developed a process for creating ESG reports and sustainability reports called the OBATA 7-Step ESG Reporting Process. OBATA’s team consists of experts who bring together the essential elements of ESG reports, incorporating their skills in storytelling, ESG report design, infographics, and photography that result in a report that reflects a client’s progress toward achieving their ESG and sustainability goals. OBATA leadership is certified in ESG Disclosures by the Corporate Finance Institute.

The ESG or Sustainability Report
This type of report has evolved considerably over the years, being originally referred to as a CSR (corporate sustainability report), and is now more commonly known as a sustainability or ESG (environmental, social, and governance) report. This is due to a shift by companies from a focus on the reporting of environmental policies only to a more expansive perspective that includes reporting on social and community involvement as well as corporate governance. It is more and more common for both privately held and publicly-traded companies to report using one or more ESG frameworks and in many instances are required by investors and other stakeholders to report on their progress on these initiatives.
OBATA is a corporate, sustainability, branding, digital communications and design agency focused on simplifying the complex by helping clients challenge the chaos of today’s communications environment. Founded in 1948, OBATA is the longest consecutively-running creative services firm in St. Louis, Missouri. The company provides expertise in ESG and annual reports, branding and identity, website design and development, digital marketing, video, and photography and serves large and small companies in life sciences, healthcare, technology, manufacturing, industrial, energy, financial services, transportation industries and more.
