Navigating the complexities of ESG reporting frameworks
It is becoming a business necessity for companies and financial institutions across the globe to report on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy and performance in disclosures made both to investors and publicly. There are now, more than ever before, market expectations for comprehensive finance-grade, auditable and comparable ESG reporting.
Alongside this call for greater quality and coverage of ESG reporting, the other key reason for companies producing detailed ESG disclosures has been to comply and keep apace with increasingly stringent legislative requirements. Aligning to a reporting standard can certainly go a long way to solving the reporting conundrum. Benefits and considerations such as consistency, comparability, recognition and investor confidence can be seen from using reporting frameworks.
