The expectations of financial markets continue to evolve as investors persist in wanting to see ESG performance data to inform their decision-making. When sustainability commitments leverage environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) factors as a means of measuring long-term value, it gives investors confidence. It ensures that relevant issues are not hidden below the surface of a current or potential target investment.
When leadership communicates a focus on ESG principles, it leads to a more engaged workforce and positions the company for further growth. An effective ESG report tells a company’s story – one that was set in motion long before the term “ESG” was commonplace. This story can evolve or grow over time, which is why we recommend a graduated and buildable approach to ESG reporting. A focus on improvement from year-to-year and quality of information is more important than quantity.
