Smithfield issues its report using an innovative corporate responsibility microsite that combines high-level, engaging and interactive sustainability information with more detailed GRI-focused information of importance to the company’s broad range of stakeholders. The 2018 Smithfield report lets users choose their own journey by using a “quick overview” feature or a content guide to build a custom report. BuzzWord has also helped Smithfield evolve its reporting to stay current with the latest GRI standards and conducted regular stakeholder-based materiality assessments to further refine and focus reporting on the company’s most important issues and how it creates value for stakeholders.
