ESG executive survey

Preparing for high-quality disclosures

The business landscape today has been transformed by environmental and social concerns. As understanding grows about the risk and value creation opportunities that ESG presents, the demand for ESG disclosure has accelerated. The companies that hold themselves accountable to their stakeholders by increasing transparency will be more viable—and valuable—in the long term. But how prepared are companies for the changing ESG landscape? We conducted an ESG executive survey to answer this question and help business leaders prepare for potential changes.

Are you prepared?

We asked 300 senior accounting, finance, legal, and sustainability executives for their views on a host of ESG-related topics—from reporting and disclosure maturity to readiness to address evolving disclosure requirements. The results provide insights into the current state of ESG preparedness. They show how companies are working toward reliable data, better technology, and additional resources to meet the growing need for high-quality ESG reporting generated through an effective governance structure and able to withstand external assurance.
