Simplifying ESG Reporting for UK SMEs
Construction The importance of ESG reporting SMEs are initiating ESG reporting because of supply chain demands and consumer pressure. Industrial or professional, everyone is affected, regardless of business type. Regulation is pushing Net Zero, and your firm’s commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals demand detailed reporting related to emissions, waste, energy, equality, safety and much more. This isn’t just ‘more red tape’: ESG is an opportunity. It enables you to win more clients, and it’s critical when seeking investment.
By working with experts to meet your obligations, you gain enhanced public relations, and the resultant operational efficiencies more than outweigh any costs. A total service designed for SMEs to report on their Environment, Social, and Governance performance. SECTOR SUMMARY Regulatory pressures The latest variations to the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 force a 10% weighting to be applied to ESG conformance on bids for public funds of >£5m. Annual reports are more than numbers. Your non-financial reports (NFR) should indicate how your institution takes the initiative in defining its own material ESG risks and opportunities.
