Never before have Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks been more on the minds of stakeholders and investors; the spotlight on corporate responsibility and sustainability shines brightly. Some of the country’s largest asset managers are urging companies to look beyond the immediate future and find ways to fully integrate sustainable practices into their bottom line.
As more companies have established reporting programs to meet these demands, three sustainability reporting frameworks, sometimes referred to as the “Big 3,” have gained traction over the last several years:
Applying these frameworks can help your company identify risks and shape your narrative in a format that investors will appreciate. We support our clients in maximizing opportunities and managing risks related to ESG reporting and disclosure. Our services include providing assurance over ESG disclosure information and advising clients on their ESG reporting strategy.
Shareholders and investors have begun to expect companies to manage their impact on the environment, create a diverse workforce, ensure the integrity of their data and address governance issues like board diversity and business ethics.
