This report offers a detailed look at global trends in sustainability reporting from 5,200 companies in 52 different countries, with insights for business leaders, company boards and sustainability professionals. Its aim is to support those who have a responsibility for assessing and preparing their own organisation’s sustainability reporting.
The survey also serves as a guide to investors, asset managers and ratings agencies who now factor sustainability or Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) information into their assessment of corporate performance and risk.
The world is in a race against time. We have only 30 years to cut global carbon emissions to net zero if we are to limit global warming and mitigate potentially catastrophic impacts of climate change. Business is not only a critical player in achieving this, it is also at risk from the physical effects of the climate crisis and the economic impacts of transitioning to a net zero economy.
Our Towards Net Zero report is the latest in KPMG’s series of sustainability reporting surveys and is intended primarily to help corporate reporting, investor relations and sustainability professionals shape their own company’s reporting. It may also help investors, lenders, insurers, asset managers and ratings agencies to understand current reporting maturity and the gaps where improvement is needed.
The TNZ surveys 250 of the world’s largest companies in terms of their climate disclosures against KPMG’s 12 Quality Criteria and the results enable any company to assess its own reporting against the performance of this global leadership group.
