ESG awareness

e-learning series

New to our PwC Academy subscription playlist

Environmental, Social and Governance reporting is a hot topic on the agenda of many Management Board teams. Businesses are now understanding that their environmental and social impact in the community – as well as their corporate governance structure and transparency – will become crucial elements for their long term sustainability and competitiveness.

But where can you start in assessing where you stand in terms of ESG compliance, norms and best practices? As an old saying goes, you can’t manage what you don’t measure.    

"How do we measure and manage ESG when there are no common standards? Where should we focus, when the list of potential issues is a mile long?”

Our solution
