In the past two proxy seasons, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has increasingly become a subject discussed on earnings calls, in annual reports, during roadshows and in face-to-face meetings with institutions. This white paper highlights how companies can improve their ESG disclosures, while also building the case for why such disclosures are increasingly important for investors and other stakeholders.
In this white paper, we discuss what the future of ESG may look like for your business. Some of the key takeaways you will learn about the future of sustainability reporting include:
- ESG is evolving from a niche to a mainstream strategy, as a growing number of investors use it as a way to understand a company’s long-term value.
- More investors are turning to third parties to find ESG ratings and rankings.
- Creating an ESG strategy begins at the top, with a knowledgeable IRO and/or sustainability chief, as well as an engaged board of directors.
