The ESG Exchange has convened a unique global ecosystem of organisations all doing their best to support organisations to embrace sustainable development – the world’s leading standard setters, regulators, assurance providers, advisory firms, advocacy groups, professional bodies, educators and experienced corporates.


The ESG Exchange has convened a unique globally representative body of experts volunteering their time to impart their expertise into How-To Playbooks to assist organisations around the world as a public good.

The ESG Exchange works to rapidly globalise scarce sustainability reporting know-how and expertise though a tech-enabled platform.


The ESG Exchange does this through two committees which:

(i) Establish global collaboration across the whole ecosystem of sustainability reporting associated organisations.

(ii) Build consensus among the world’s experts on what and how organisations should embed sustainability competencies and capabilities.

(iii) Curate How-To Playbooks using existing expert know-how and content.


The ESG Exchange equips organisations to publish comparable, assurable, repeatable, decision-useful, digital sustainability information.

The Advisory Committee is comprised of the ecosystem of organisations involved in sustainability information and reporting.


The Advisory Committee collaborates to establish solutions to systemic issues and sustainability reporting dilemmas. 


Think Tanks are being established to bring the relevant parties together and build consensus on the way forward to solving systemic sustainability issues such as ‘Digitizing the Lost World of Scope 3’.


The work of the Advisory Committee helps organisations to do their part by directing the development of How-To Playbooks by the expert members of the Technical Committee.


In this way, The ESG Exchange helps the ecosystem to focus energy and limited resources to solving sustainability issues.

The Technical Committee is comprised of the world’s sustainability and sustainability reporting experts.


The Technical Committee works to curate How-To Playbooks which will be ready for publication by the end of 2023


How-To Playbooks will be accessed by logging in to The ESG Exchange free of charge together with Discussion Forums and Searchable Content.


In this way, The ESG Exchange will help all organisations globally by:
