Leading up to COP26 and in ongoing pursuit of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, there is tremendous momentum behind corporate ESG reporting to hold business and industry to account on meeting global sustainability commitments – and to inform stakeholders of the risks that falling short on them carry.
