This template has been created to help you get started on your company’s first CSEA transparency report. It provides suggestions and guidance for the three major sections of a report: 

  1. Policies and Practices
  2. Processes and Systems
  3. Outcomes

Each section includes a list of potential categories and/or metrics to include, with indications for which are expected and which may be more aspirational. Not every item will be relevant for all companies, but overall the template should help you understand what content transparency reports should typically include. For additional information on transparency reporting best practices, please see the Tech Coalition’s Trust Framework - Transparency Reporting Implementation Guide.
