Guidance on improving the quality of ESG information for decision-making

WBCSD and FSR - Danish Auditors have published a first-of-its-kind guidance on how companies can improve the quality of, and confidence in, their ESG information by considering the basic building blocks of internal controls.

It’s important for companies to pursue investment grade environment, social and governance (ESG) data to support decision-making and robust control activities to improve the process of data collection, analysis and reporting. 

But companies first need to understand the business case for improving the internal control environment and the quality of ESG data. 

The new guidance from the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and FSR - Danish Auditors offers a series of questions for a company to use to conduct a gap analysis and understand what needs to be improved. 

The guidance also provides practical suggestions aligned to the COSO Internal Control Framework on how changes can be made within an organization - from establishing a chart of accounts and a group ESG data manual, through to training workshops and reports to management to continue to improve and develop the process. 

To be resilient, successful and sustainable, companies must understand the impacts and dependencies of their business models. They must manage risks and take advantage of opportunities in their operating environment. This demands comprehensive information - which starts with reliable data flowing through the business to support internal decision-making.
