Sustainability reporting and disclosures services for financial services

A huge number of sustainability reporting and disclosure requirements are required to assess climate and sustainability risks and opportunities. It’s a complex world to navigate, and EY professionals can help firms understand what is required of them, and how to develop, implement and embed their sustainability reporting and disclosures.

Climate related reporting and disclosures for financial services

Watch as our leaders discuss the myriad of reporting and disclosure requirements, and the challenges financial services institutions are facing.

What EY can do for you

Sustainability guidelines, frameworks and standards are attracting increased attention, thanks to a growing focus, in particular from investors and regulators. Financial services organizations are now expected to be transparent and accountable in their sustainability reporting to illustrate their actions toward building a sustainable economy.

Alongside these enhanced disclosures, there is a need for an effective control environment. This will need to be broadened out to foster credibility, accuracy and authenticity in your sustainability ambition, strategy and public disclosures.

EY teams work with financial services firms at varying stages of their sustainability journey to develop their understanding of sustainability reporting requirements, including:

  • Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)

  • International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB)

  • Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)

  • Global Reporting Initiative (GRI)
  • European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS)

  • EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)

  • UK Transition Plan Taskforce (TPT)

  • US Securities and Exchange Commission

Teams work alongside financial services institutions to; determine which performance indicators and metrics are needed to report, explore the data that is required for reporting, and then identify what is missing and what action is needed to fill the gaps.

To facilitate this complex task, EY teams have invested in a sophisticated gap analysis tool that can map data needs across key reporting frameworks such as CSRD, ISSB, TCFD and GRI, providing a full analysis and implementation plan to facilitate financial services institutions’ reporting requirements.
