Online Reporting

Getting stakeholders to read a company sustainability report and derive value from it is often a challenge. Online sustainability or integrated reporting is more accessible, engaging, and measurable than stand-alone print reports. When done well, a strong online sustainability presence drives stakeholders to get the information they want quickly and easily, thus creating an enjoyable user experience that has them returning for more!


Branding & Identity Development

We work with our clients to build a brand identities for sustainability programs. We draft sustainability messages, develop creative tagline options, create design options that align with your message and resonate with stakeholders.


Video Production

Video is an engaging and consistent way to explain what sustainability is and why it matters to your company. BrownFlynn can help you to develop a 3–5 minute animated or live action video that brings your story to life.

Targeted Communications Materials

We transform sustainability messaging into visually appealing infographics. Infographics designed for sales teams can communicate key sustainability messages about a company and its products—ultimately helping to increase sales.

BrownFlynn Lights Up Times Square

Early in September 2017, BrownFlynn and Uplifting Leaders* (*Who Happen to Be Women), a book written by the firm’s Co-Founders Barb Brown and Margie Flynn, lit up the Nasdaq MarketSite Tower in Times Square. The book captures insights and stories of 25 of the nation’s most accomplished and influential women in business—including Adena Friedman, President and CEO of Nasdaq, on how they empower and uplift others as they seek to progress in their lives and careers. In recognition of BrownFlynn’s 20th anniversary, all net proceeds of the book will be donated to the YWCA Greater Cleveland to “uplift” and support the education of young women transitioning out of foster care.
