A limit of 55 documents per assessment has been set for all companies, regardless of their size, to help ensure that only the most relevant documents are submitted. We encourage companies to consolidate and transparently disclose their information. Over the years, we have noticed that the top performers tend to have consolidated reports (Sustainability Reports), which can be associated with as many answers as applicable, and obtain some of the highest scores while without submitting combined documents.
Please be noted that we do not accept combined documents as evidence. Combined documents refer to a single supporting documentation that consists of multiple sub-documents. For example, a rated company provides a combined document containing a mix of environmental policies, risk assessment and training materials. Documents from a robust sustainability management system should be pre-existing, well-structured and easily accessible for stakeholder reviews. Uploading combined documents does not respect the 55 documents limit and cannot truly reflect the reality and/or maturity of the management system.
In order to help you select the most relevant documents for the assessment, we have put together a Document Guide available from our Help Center: What type of supporting documents can I provide?
You can also refer to How To Meet the Document Limit and Avoid Submitting Combined Documents for more information on combined documents and document prioritization, which can also be found on the questionnaire platform.
