The importance of ESG for businesses and governments across the globe is undoubtedly on the rise. Increased focus driven by regulators and investors is demanding organizations to assess their well-being not only against financial metrics but also to reflect their Environmental, Social and Governance commitments. On top of that, businesses are under pressure to make public their dedication to Sustainability and ESG related strategies while ensuring the metrics they hold themselves against are suitably accurate. However, with little categorical guidance on what could still be considered an immature space of reporting, top business executives are struggling to accept the concept all together. In this session, we will review the basics of ESG Reporting, further highlighting recent regional regulations alongside the associated key challenges facing organisations. More importantly, we will shed light on the role Chief Audit Executives have on this in order to support management with giving advice and driving assurance on ESG matters.
