Socially Responsible Investing, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives, and emerging global regulation are motivating enterprises to take innovative approaches to building trusted and transparent climate accounting systems. 

Businesses are undertaking systematic ESG transformation initiatives to:

  • Build trusted and transparent climate accounting solutions to competitively differentiate while efficiently adhering to climate regulations;
  • Better assess, measure, and manage climate risk exposure to business operations; and
  • Understand the valuation impact of environmental, social and governance risks on asset valuations

The next generation enterprise will integrate ESG considerations into the DNA of their business.  Early adopters who embrace trusted and transparent climate accounting systems will drive competitive advantages in capital markets while swiftly and efficiently demonstrating compliance to regulatory requirements and corporate commitments.
