Corporate Sustainability Reporting

My research area is sustainability reporting... And I am doing research on sustainability reporting status in India... Basically this sustainability reporting is very new concept for Indian corporation.
Sustainability means reducing the damage to our environment. I think it is important to solve the complications which we are currently facing such as global warming, shortage of natural resources and threat to buy diversity.
Solving above mentioned problems is called sustainability. Sustainability is nothing but saving for the future. The term was first popularized in 1987, in a book published by the World Commission on Environment and Development (WCED). The WCED, headed by Gro Brundtland, defines sustainable development
as “meeting the need of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” (Brundtland, 1987). So sustainability is nothing but using the current resources carefully so that that the future generations can enjoy these as such scare resources.
