ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance), which includes sustainability reporting, is a topic of growing importance for private and public sector alike as stakeholders and investors demand better visibility of the impact organisations are having on the planet and society. Accountants and finance professionals are increasingly being called on to help measure and report on various ESG metrics and to ensure the appropriate disclosures are being made, a task which is unfamiliar to many.
