 ESG reporting is one manifestation of a type of organisational reporting that captures more than just financial information. Other terms have also been used including Corporate Social Reporting/Disclosure (CSR/D), Triple Bottom Line Reporting, and Sustainability Reporting, each has come with it's own approach and focus. We use the term ESG as a catch all for the purposes of this session.
