Visualization and User-Ability can be improved by adding pictures & graphs next to “complicated” content to make the content easier understand for all stakeholder groups. Emphasizing relevant parts & structure the info overflow better.
A detailed stakeholder map plotted in a structured graph would give a better overview of the relevant stakeholders and their engagement. This helps prioritizing material topics by stakeholder engagement.
Even though there is a management approach stated, the specific role that sustainability plays within REWE`s processes should be stated such as providing an organigram to understand the decision-making process regarding material topics etc.
REWE’s CSR report should put the economic part aside and focus on value creation with an outside-in approach to create long-lasting changes & developments to follow their due diligence.
In general REWE should take proof and evidence of their action into the report
