Sustainability reporting is becoming more regulated and scrutinised. Its integrity is critical to strategic decision making and managing reputation.
Sustainability reporting is critical to strategic decision making and managing reputation.
Organisations have been reporting financial information for many decades. Sustainability reporting is, by comparison, still in its infancy. As companies incorporate sustainability into their core business strategies, the importance of timely and accurate sustainability related information increases. Senior management need and expect the same level of control over this information as they have over financial data. Yet, in many cases such control is not there.
Today's businesses need to be concerned about the accuracy and integrity of sustainability information and data which is reported to stakeholders or used for strategic decision making. The reputational risk of getting it wrong is significant, both in terms of not managing the right risks or reporting inaccurate information. Organisations cannot afford to make mistakes.
