ESG FAQ

What is ESG Reporting?

ESG reporting is a way for companies (and other organizations) to measure and assess their performance on values-based goals relating to the environment, social and governance issues. Many companies include reporting on ESG factors in their Annual Reports. But, some companies produce dedicated ESG reports that are often more comprehensive, transparent and quantifiable. ESG reports are used by financial analysts and other stakeholders to determine ratings and investment risks and potential, thus they can have a significant impact.

Why should companies focus on ESG?

Companies and investment managers who prioritize ESG often outperform competitors financially. At the same time, these organizations tend to make a positive impact on the world by advancing progress on key issues that are important to them.

What makes a good ESG report?

Transparency and accountability are the key to creating a verifiable report that can be trusted. It is also important for companies to follow a set of standards year-over-year so that progress can be measured on a continuum. Unfortunately, there are many standards all over the world and this can lead to confusion for investors and stakeholders.

How do I get started?

One step at a time. Developing an ESG reporting plan involves a deep dive to assess an organization’s mission, vision and values, as well as its efforts to achieve ESG goals. A comprehensive intra-organization assessment is often helpful to identify areas where a company is excelling or might be experiencing ESG risk. From that point, research and message development is needed so that collateral materials can be produced. But, all this must be based on a set of trusted reporting standards that are familiar to investors. Once a report is produced, outreach to investors is crucial before the cycle can begins again with monitoring for developments and measurement of impacts.
