How-To Playbook

Integrated Thinking and Reporting

A key enabler for sustainability reporting.

Following the 2023 year of ‘The What’ (what regulations and what disclosure obligations organisations are required to fulfil), 2024 and onwards beckon the commencement of the new era of ‘The How’.

The ESG Exchange hosts a series of tech-talks with our community of guest experts. The aim of these free webinars is to channel knowledge for businesses to better implement best practices regarding ESG, nature and people impacts and public reporting, disclosure and risks and opportunities assessment.


Previous tech-talks have focused on materiality and impact, with partners such as the Global Reporting Initiative, IFRS Foundation and the International Sustainability Standards Board, Value Balancing Alliance, United Nations Development Programme, EFRAG, the World Benchmarking Alliance, Impact Management Platform, Capitals Coalition, Accounting 4 Sustainability among others.

The era of reporting what you want is well and truly over. Now organisations are either obligated by regulators to disclose in accordance with standards, and in doing so to provide independent assurance (limited rising to reasonable over time), or they are required by their customers to disclose information which, by and large, reflects regulatory obligations of those customers.


The challenge now is to understand how to establish and implement management systems and practices for these new ‘non-financial’ sustainability data. Whereas these data are mostly available, they are initially not easily assessable. Organisations need to learn how to plan what they need to do, and in doing, they need to learn how to check that what they’re doing is being done the right way such that they can take the right actions.


But no one has undertaken this before. This is the first time that regulators, standard sellers and organisations have had to mobilise around heretofore unfamiliar topics within such tight timeframes. As a result, The ESG Exchange has come together to collaborate on capacity building on an unprecedented scale. Using an internationally proven and accepted management systems approach of how to Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA), we are building How-To Playbooks to explain what you need to know.


All information is freely available and if you wish you can also opt to gain CPD points and/or get The ESG Exchange accreditation.
