How ESG reporting creates value for companies

Investors are increasingly adopting the practice of integrating environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations in their analysis and decision-making process, to reduce risks and improve returns.

 

As a result, they are seeking consistent, comparable, reliable, timely, and measurable information about ESG issues that are financially material to companies’ operating performance, long-term prospects, and risk profile.

Such information is incorporated into financial forecasts, cost of capital, and valuation multiples.

For companies, providing investors with decision-useful ESG information forms part of a management process (manage-measure-report) that improves their performance, their access to capital, and their market valuation.
