The Governance > The Importance of Governance in ESG
Why is ESG reporting important?

Global efforts to combat climate change have reached a turning point. Concern about the need for change is causing investors to examine organisations and their footprint. Boards have a responsibility to understand how ESG relates to governance and lead thoughtfully.


Environmental and social problems evolve rapidly so a solid, competent framework needs to be in place to maintain long-term performance.


An organisation’s sustainability practices will either be an advantage or a reputational risk to its ESG and governance approach.


Boards and committees with various attributes, expertise, desired skills and ESG training help to prepare an organisation for the future.
