Whether you are a young growth company seeking initial recognition, or a more established and well-known company, you probably find you are constantly competing for capital with others around the globe. One powerful way to distinguish yourself is with a carefully crafted ESG message.
A Confusing Sustainability Reporting Landscape: We are already working with hundreds of companies to either initiate reporting, or fine tune and expand existing programs, and we often hear these questions:
- Where should we start?
- What matters most?
- What should we disclose at our web-site, the proxy, 10-K and other channels?
Cutting through the Clutter: To answer these questions, DFIN, along with our sustainability reporting partners the Governance & Accountability Institute (G&A), apply a five-step process. Importantly, this five-step process is equally applicable to proxy, AR, web-site and CSR report development. Following these steps helps ensure consistency of materiality prioritization, and of messaging, across documents and channels.
