The Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting landscape is evolving rapidly and will change even more so in the coming months and years, and as a result has become a focus of the GPPC.

We are pleased to share ‘Perspectives on ESG Reporting – The future of ESG Reporting explored’ which has been issued by the Global Public Policy Committee (GPPC).[i]

The GGPC has brought together representatives from the reporting and assurance, corporate governance, investor and policy making communities from across the world to participate in four regional roundtable discussions to consider the current ESG reporting landscape so they could contribute their knowledge and experience on this complex topic.[ii]

These discussions, focussed on answering three broad questions on ESG reporting and assurance which were:

  • where are we now?
  • where do we want to go?
  • how do we get there?

The output of these discussions aim to provide a view to helping standard setters and public policy decision makers identify potential approaches to better align corporate reporting and auditing solutions with stakeholder and societal objectives.

If you would like to discuss any areas of this paper in more detail, we encourage you to contact either Sarah Carroll, Grant Thornton International, Director – Sustainability Reporting at sarah.carroll@gti.gt.com or your local Grant Thornton representative.

[i] The GPPC comprises representatives of the six largest accounting networks being BDO, Deloitte, EY, Grant Thornton, KPMG and PwC.
[ii] The regional areas were the Americas, EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa),
Asia Pacific and Oceania
