Unpacking ESG Reporting: Navigating its Evolution and Impacts in Different Industries

April 1, 2023
Sonia Gossai

With the increased focus on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) matters, industries across the board are discussing these topics. This heightened interest comes as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) considers rules that could mean new types of reporting for businesses that have not traditionally been subject to this kind of requirement. Meanwhile, many still grapple with understanding exactly what ESG entails and its long-term implications for their business.

In the latest episode of “On the Shop Floor”, hosts Colby Horn and Jody Allred, are joined by Greg Englert, a Partner in Weaver‘s Risk Advisory Services. They delve into the complexities and nuances of ESG, exploring its evolution, its impact on various industries, and proposed SEC rules that could potentially redefine ESG reporting.

In this conversation, they focus on the following points:

• Understanding the basics of ESG, its origins, and evolution

• The role of private equity (PE) firms in shaping the ESG narrative and driving its adoption

• The potential impact of new SEC rules on ESG reporting, especially around emissions

• The specific effects of ESG on manufacturing, distribution, and retail sectors

• How businesses, particularly those in the private sector, are preparing for the expected ripple effects

Guest Greg Englert brings a valuable perspective on the current and future of ESG and its effect on businesses. In addition to his professional focus on this issue, he has worked extensively with clients across many sectors and industries providing risk advisory services during his 17-year career.
