In today's regulatory environment, companies face a growing number of requests and legally mandated requirements for sustainability data.
As the variety of sources seeking sustainability information from companies, and the type and level of detail requested, continues to grow, so does the potential risk for discrepancies in what is being reported through different channels within an organization.
Growing scrutiny of sustainability claims by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), other regulators and interested parties may raise the potential exposure of companies to regulatory sanctions, litigation, and government investigations.
To help protect themselves from potential conflicts and resulting liabilities, companies can benefit by taking a coordinated approach to sustainability disclosures that aligns with financial and regulatory reporting processes.
