Carbon and Beyond: The ESG and Sustainability Trends Shaping Business Today

These days stakeholders are asking more and more about how environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors impact business, and companies are responding by issuing ESG reports and making public commitments to positively impact society and the environment. As regulators around the world move to make ESG disclosures mandatory, organizations are challenged to move from declarations to demonstration — and quickly.

In this series sponsored by FigBytes, we’ll take a closer look at how organizations can bridge the gap between ESG strategy and execution, gain better insights from their data, achieve reporting efficiencies, and offer transparent engagement to their stakeholders.
