Good governance and reporting

Increasing expectations from investors and consumers mean that businesses must show more transparency around their performance and their impact on society. Members tell us that reporting on non-financial performance is one of their top emerging issues.

This workstream is looking at how ESG risk management, performance and non-financial reporting practices can be better valued and integrated into the DNA of business to help ensure long term growth and profitability, and value creation. Unlocking these opportunities has been at the heart of our work with CEOs, directors, and regulatory and advisory bodies to help businesses improve ESG performance and disclosure, and integrate sustainability into corporate governance. Through our Member Review process we provide one-to-one feedback to many of our members on their non-financial reporting, and continue to see improvements across the board.

SBC and BusinessNZ are working together to develop and test a mainstreaming model.
