Think ESG: the investor perspective on ESG reporting

Breaking down the different types of investors and their varying perspectives on the environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting ecosystem, while highlighting their priorities shaping the future of nonfinancial reporting.

While it is widely known that investors play a key role and have considerable interest in advancing ESG reporting initiatives, not all investors are the same. Asset owners, passive investors, investment managers and sell-side analysts each have perspectives on what constitutes long-term value creation, and what the focus areas for companies should be to derive it. 

Following the first Think ESG Webcast, the role of finance and the board in enhanced corporate reporting, this second installment in our webcast series delves into what ESG information is important to different investors and why. 

In this webcast, panelists will highlight their views and preferences on various types of ESG reporting disclosures, trends they see in the market, and ultimately how both impact decision-making when choosing to invest.  

Topics discussed include:

  • Gaining a better understanding of the latest developments in the regulatory landscape related to ESG reporting.
  • Learning about investors priorities and how they are shaping the future of nonfinancial reporting.
