As ESG disclosure continues to mainstream across industries, managing sustainability is fast becoming a business case for long-term business performance. Companies increasingly see that ESG management can cater to the growing needs of their customers and stakeholders, but also bring strategic value to their business, and a sustainable economy. However, in reality ESG efforts today are often still adhoc and fragmented. Observers express concern that growth in the quantity of ESG reporting is creating further market confusion and adding to greenwash.
This short briefing aims to provide senior leaders with perspectives on the current developments with a focus on reporting, the factors moving the needle on climate action, with an eye on what they should expect in ESG disclosure in the horizon.
