Bridge the corporate reporting disconnect

The recent EY Global Corporate Reporting and Institutional Investor Survey canvassed 1,040 senior finance leaders at companies issuing reporting and 320 institutional investors as users of those disclosures. Three important themes emerge for the future of corporate reporting:

  1. There is a significant disconnect between companies and investors when it comes to maintaining a focus on long-term value creation and sustainable growth and avoiding short-term thinking.
  2. Effective corporate reporting could be key to building alignment and understanding, but investors say that current environmental, social and governance (ESG) disclosures do not meet their requirements and expectations.
  3. Companies should align with investors and stakeholders on ESG disclosures within corporate reporting, including expectations about net-zero carbon emissions, robust governance and board oversight around sustainability, and more consistent, comparable and reliable ESG disclosures.
