These have far-reaching implications for all financial market participants operating in Europe and may inspire other parts of the world to accelerate on the topic of sustainable finance. This article gives a brief overview of sustainable finance in Europe and its global implications for companies.

The Art of Non-Financial Reporting “Less is More”

The magnitude of different non-financial reporting frameworks increasingly pressures sustainability departments in staying away from the reporting trap and focusing on improving their positive impact. Companies must frequently cope with limited bandwidth in terms of attention and resources. Instead of the all-too-common machine gun approach of spraying efforts large and thin, it is important to select a limited number of high-impact sustainability efforts. Effective implementation requires precision in the definition of sustainability targets and dedicated efforts in execution.
