In striving for sustainability, contemporary corporations are faced with a multitude of stakeholders, all vying for their piece of the corporate sustainability pie. In adhering to such diverse demands, the effective communication of corporate sustainability information becomes crucial. This paper reflects on key metaphysical principles in respect of aspects that can contribute, or perhaps detract, from effective corporate communication, and then especially within the context of contemporary corporate sustainability reporting. The paper concludes that the primary modal aspects as per the Dutch philosopher, Dooyeweerd, can play a very important role in effecting corporate sustainability reporting. As such, this will not only contribute to appeasing diverse stakeholder requirements, but will also indirectly support corporate sustainability initiatives.
