Embracing ESG considerations
The increased focus on sustainable development and the transition to a more sustainable and inclusive economy have led to an uptick in investor demand for transparent and comprehensive ESG data.
“Information that was previously considered as non-financial information is now becoming increasingly critical in the financial evaluation of companies. This trend is becoming mainstream,” adds Flavia Micilotta.
Corporate ESG reporting offers investors, future employees and other stakeholders a window into the quality of a company’s management and the environmental and social impact of a company’s activities. More and more companies share their approach to ESG matters in a transparent way with the public through ESG reports or sustainability reports. In this context, LuxSE’s Guide to ESG Reporting offers a comprehensive description of the process to put in place and the different aspects to consider for the reporting.
Meeting investor demand
LuxSE’s Guide to ESG Reporting constitutes a roadmap for companies, issuers and asset managers to integrate ESG considerations into business-decisions, and illustrates how different stakeholders can proceed to meet investor demand for transparent and clear ESG information. The broad scope of the guidelines—covering companies, issuers and asset managers—makes LuxSE’s Guide to ESG Reporting unique.
These ESG Guidelines serve as a compass for users when identifying ESG activities and defining an ESG strategy. The guide furthermore covers the process for data collection and processing, and offers advice as for how to establish the most suitable reporting format, communication channels and reporting period.
