As COP26 drew to a close, the outcomes of the Glasgow Climate Pact were being pored over. One thing, however, was certain, enterprise organizations will continue to play a key role in driving climate action to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees above preindustrial levels.
Organizations have struggled with a myriad of sustainability standards, frameworks, and metrics. An ESG reporting standard is vital to drive understanding and comparability. At COP26, the creation of the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) was announced which is responsible for consolidating existing standards and creating consistent, comparable, high quality international sustainability reporting standards. Organizations will have to set up the right data infrastructure to report effectively in line with the new standards. The ability to bring together data from functions across the organization and harmonize external data with internal repositories will be key to enabling a holistic view and being ready for future reporting demands.
Thorogood has experience working with leading enterprise organizations to create the necessary data infrastructure to support the upcoming regulatory ESG reporting and inform their sustainability initiatives. In this recorded webcast we outline some of the things we have learned.
