About the course

Corporate sustainability and sustainable business procedures are becoming more and more popular. Investors, lenders, big clients, and consumers all want ESG data and information to help them make choices when investing, lending, and buying. This shift has led to a demand for ESG data—information about a company’s environmental, social, and governance practices—that is reliable, widely accessible, and comparable. How, then, should companies disclose this data?

In this course you will learn more about corporate sustainability reporting, including different types of ESG reporting frameworks and standards and of their requirements and guidelines.
