ESG reporting means a company disclosing its environmental, social & governance (ESG) data for transparency.
Many companies disclose their sustainability data voluntarily following various reporting standards and frameworks, such as GRI and SASB to meet investor and consumer demands and to create a competitive edge.
Sustainability reporting is mandatory for many financial market participants and large and listed companies around the world. Such non-financial reporting is gaining real momentum. For instance, in the EU, the upcoming Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive will expand the existing requirements to cover over 50,000 listed and large companies and will introduce stricter standards in line with the EU Taxonomy for sustainable activities and require third-party auditing, as of 2023. Similar rules will expand to the EU small and medium-sized listed enterprises as of 2027.
By contributing to the protection of forests likely threatened by destruction or conversion via Single.Earth, a company can contribute to its environmental and climate goals through nature-based solutions and expand its portfolio of climate action beyond net-zero goals and offsetting solutions. Supporting the preservation of biodiverse forests is the most cost-effective, scalable, and immediate solution to the twin crises of climate change and biodiversity loss.
We issue a Contribution Certificate for every company that makes a nature-positive contribution through Single.Earth towards achieving the Sustainable development Goal (SDG) 15 Life on land: protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss. The Certificate is ready to be included in sustainability reports, and we are happy to assist you with any questions.
