Navigating Sustainability Data: How Organizations Can Use Esg Data to Secure Their Future (Hardcover)
With sustainability now a fundamental strategic pillar for organizations, ESG metrics are vital for decision making, yet this data is complex and ever evolving.Navigating Sustainability Data provides a focused guide for leaders and executives who want to understand how sustainability impacts a company's future and how they can use data as a key tool to facilitate growth, access to capital and the meeting of regulatory requirements. It explores what data is required to make decisions that directly affect the company's valuation and helps leadership teams decide what datapoints they need to be preparing for their boards to support the organization's financial, strategic and reputational future. Showing how leaders can move from measuring data to managing future organizational risks and rewards, the book explores how to use the right data for the appropriate situation to drive efficient sustainable business decisions. It will outline what is ESG data and what data is relevant to leaders; what investors consider as essential data for a business valuation; and how regulation, disclosure and transparency are changing and the data needed to comply. It also looks at how organizations can protect their reputations against greenwashing and how international markets differ in their approach to sustainability data.
