The aim of our study was to research corporate sustainability reporting. To this end, we developed a model of indicators and used it to examine corporate websites and annual/sustainability reports published on the web. Our study found that Slovenian corporate sustainability reporting is still in an initial stage, considering that, for the most part, companies fail to provide a significant share of comprehensive information. This is particularly obvious in the environmental part of sustainability reporting. A comparison of environmental and social aspects of reporting shows that companies tend to report social information more comprehensively.
