Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) metrics and disclosures are an increasing focus for businesses as they respond to a wave of scrutiny from stakeholders - from investors and regulators to employees, customers and the public.
High scoring on ESG factors signals to your stakeholders a more sustainable and resilience business with superior prospects to survive and thrive.
ESG disclosures are expected to comply with mandatory and voluntary reporting requirements and be credible, verifiable and comparable, allowing stakeholders to make decisions that matter to them.
For many organisations, getting ESG reporting right is a real challenge. The range of ESG metrics and disclosure frameworks used is vast and varies by sector, size and complexity of business, as well as global location. Transparency and data are critical to build the trust and recognition of your commitment to ESG and drive your market growth.
