Secondly, reliability test on the predetermined parameters were applied using Chronbach Alfa. Lastly, to study further, mean percentage of the score were calculated and to find out the significant difference chi square test was used. It was found that, reporting activities of both the industries are similar although mean percentage of steel industry regarding the sustainability reporting is bit higher than cement industry. Although from mean percentage table, the difference in reporting style by steel and cement industry seems to be very minimal and difficult to prove whether any significant difference exists or not? Hence, the statistical tool, chi-square test is used and derived the value of 8.032 along with ‘p value’ (0.00495) which is less than 0.05. Hence, it is proved that there is significant difference in environmental reporting style of steel and cement industries.
