Effective ESG reporting draws upon data sources across the enterprise and requires collaboration from a broad set of internal stakeholders. Many organizations have committed to develop and publish ESG disclosures. However, given the breadth of ESG and the considerations needed across multiple departments and systems, few have devised a cohesive and enterprise-wide approach to collect, aggregate, and report data.
KPMG LLP (KPMG) has teamed with Workiva to address ESG data collection, aggregation, data management controls, and reporting challenges. By bringing together KPMG cross-functional teams, deep industry knowledge, and Workiva technology skills, KPMG can help stand up and mature your ESG reporting program based on your organization’s unique needs.
With a solid strategy as your foundation, the “what” to measure and report comes into focus. The Workiva platform brings automation and workflow to support your data and reporting processes in a consistent, repeatable manner. The Workiva platform can integrate with your existing applications to help connect the dots in a way that wasn’t possible before and remove the inefficiency and inherent risk of manual processes. Through connecting data sources to report outputs, organizations can view their data through the lens of different frameworks, helping drive material topics and sustainability initiatives. Workiva’s data management and query ability provides users flexibility in collecting data and ease in mapping metrics to frameworks. As the data moves through the ESG reporting cycle, Workiva records changes to data and enables auditability of the final reports.
KPMG and Workiva collaborate to think both deeper and broader when it comes to addressing challenges within the final mile of ESG reporting. We can help you advance the maturity of your reporting program and unlock potential for future growth.
