Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) represents a stakeholder-centric approach to financial reporting. ESG expands the discussion beyond the impact to organization’s own financials to its effect on the communities it operates within and the environment.
Schneider Downs is positioned to provide independent assurance services to your organization’s ESG reported financials and metrics. We can provide audit, review, and compilation services over ESG reporting, based on the level of assurance required.
Demand for this ESG information continues to grow from customers, employees, investors and other organizations within their supply chain, which has driven organizations to begin voluntary disclosure of their initiatives. Stakeholder groups are placing increasing importance on supporting companies working towards making the world a better place through a commitment to high environmental, social, and governance standards.
These groups want to ensure organizations align with their priorities by acting as a good corporate citizen. In addition, current and future investors also want to know that the business is aware of these matters, actively mitigating risk, and preparing for the future.
As ESG continues to gain momentum, privately held and publicly traded organizations are noticing the benefit of taking credit for their efforts in these areas through additional reporting and are seeing opportunities to differentiate themselves by having third parties provide assurance over their reporting. This process will demonstrate strides towards stated organizational goals.
