Enterprises are realizing environmental, social and governance reporting is an effective way of communicating impact.
“Global harmonization in value reporting and its integration with traditional financial reporting is an economic imperative,” writes Laura Hay, CPA, CAE, OSCPA executive vice president in the March/April issue of CPA Voice.
Hay says there is an increasing body of research demonstrating a positive correlation between ESG measures and financial performance.
“In a world of significant change, businesses are driven to provide more information, and investors and employees are seeking more accountability, creating an opportunity for both internal and external financial advisors to contribute to long-term organizational success,” she writes.
