In an increasingly interconnected world on the cusp of positive change and, at the same time, rife with uncertainty, stakeholders want true visibility into companies’ activities and impacts on the environment, people and the world around them. Gaining momentum over the last decade and particularly in the past five years, environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting is a way for companies to share performance beyond financial results and better assess investment risks and opportunities associated with impacts and contributions on the environment, people and communities.
A growing contingent of stakeholders including investors, governments, employees and consumers demand that companies disclose a breadth of sustainability, social responsibility and risk data in addition to their regular, annual financial reporting regimen.
