Don’t reinvent the wheel

This is new territory for most corporate C-suites and boards. On the front-line for this task will be companies’ reporting officers.

Many aren’t prepared 

> They don’t know how to compile the reports

> They don’t know what information to include

The ESG Exchange has deep global expertise on both the process and the content
