Despite the rising prominence of ESG in the business and investor community, ESG reporting isn’t getting any simpler.
The Greenhouse Gas Protocol publishes a number of accounting standards to help organizations to account their GHG emissions. These guidelines inform the ‘E’ in the ‘alphabet soup’ of ESG reporting, which encompass sustainability guidance and reporting frameworks such as GRI, CDP – Climate Change, GRESB, SASB, and DJSI, and more.
As industry accelerates progress towards decarbonization, the emphasis on high-quality, verifiable, and consistent data will become increasingly important to demonstrate progress.
In over a decade of supporting organizations on their decarbonization journey, we are constantly reminded that ESG data capture and management present a challenge for many organizations. Key guidance and reporting frameworks are working together to reduce administrative complexities for companies and allow more informed, consistent reporting material to a wide range of stakeholders with a central global reporting standard.
In over 10 years working with industry leaders to improve their sustainability performance, we’ve identified key strategies to accelerate the low carbon pathway – regardless of which framework you follow.
That’s why we created an ebook, to help organizations better align people, process and technology to transition to a low carbon future.
In this ebook we answer how to:
- Establish finance-grade sustainability data.
- Account GHG emissions for reporting and disclosure.
- Tackle the more complex components of GHG accounting.
