How mature is ESG reporting in Canada?
We’re seeing businesses turn to their finance teams for help answering these questions with confidence and to play an important role in their ESG reporting. Within more mature companies, finance and sustainability teams are working together to address these rising stakeholder expectations through investor-grade integrated financial and ESG reporting.
This was one of the topics we explored in our recent analysis of the sustainability reports and other disclosures of Canada’s top 250 publicly traded companies, as measured by revenue and market capitalization. We applied PwC’s internally developed framework for assessing ESG reporting maturity to the strategy, materiality, targets, metrics and key performance indicators, assurance and other elements of Canadian companies’ ESG reporting.
