Since it began tracking sustainability reports in 1993, KPMG has uncovered monumental changes and dramatic shifts in the number of companies reporting on sustainability, particularly in recent years. This shift is driven by new laws and regulations, as well as increasing recognition that environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues impact financial performance.
The KPMG Survey of Sustainability Reporting 2020 includes 5,200 companies in 52 countries and jurisdictions.
