As ESG reporting increases, CFOs have higher priorities

PwC’s study shows that there is still progress to be made when it comes to integrating DEI functions into both internal and external reporting standards.

At ideascape, we help DEI teams see themselves as the “S” of ESG. Our database of reporting materials, standards, and formats helps our members identify trends, innovative techniques, and pain points when it comes to reporting. We look at ESG from a holistic POV– focusing on what information gets reported and most importantly, how that information is presented to internal and external stakeholders.
