Meeting investors’ sustainability disclosure expectations is no longer optional
Demonstrating your company’s sustainability performance may seem like an optional objective – something nice to do – not a necessity. But in today’s climate-conscious world, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) disclosure and reporting is becoming an imperative for companies who want to grow shareholder value and remain competitive.
Investment management companies like BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager, are requiring companies they invest in to disclose key sustainability metrics. Examples of values-based measures that investors and other stakeholders expect include:
- Climate impact, based upon greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
- Buildings designed and constructed according to green building standards
- Products sustainably sourced and responsibly produced
- Natural resources utilized
