The emerging revelations from the ESG100 report shed light on a pervasive issue – the noticeable chasm in company readiness for the impending European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS).
The report implies that on average, firms listed under ESG100 have reported a mere 54% out of the tested 68 ESRS disclosures. Simon Taylor, senior director at Position Green, recently shared insightful takeaways from the recent assessment, accentuating a crucial need for immediate action among corporations.
The scenario in Scandinavian countries paints a relatively optimistic picture in terms of ESG disclosures. However, the evident discrepancies in these numbers indicate that companies sprawled across the rest of Europe, including the UK and the US, are on the brink of confronting substantial gaps, especially those bound to adhere to the ESRS.
With the ESRS set to roll out its regulations, effectual from January 1, 2024, the corporate sector finds itself in a race against time, necessitating swift actions to evaluate and bridge their readiness gaps, a journey that will undeniably demand both time and resources.
