Environmental, social and governance efforts are increasingly important for businesses around the world. ESG helps address commitment to society and the environment, and provides a framework for sustainable and progressive business development. However, as a chair or board member, determining how well your company performs in ESG and ensuring compliance can be daunting. That’s where BoardClic’s ESG Maturity Assessment comes in.

Our ESG Maturity Assessment evaluates strengths and weaknesses in six key ESG efforts to help boards and c-level executives identify opportunities for sustainable growth and business development, including:

  • Purpose & governance
  • Materiality & stakeholder engagement
  • Environment
  • Climate governance
  • Social, diversity & inclusion
  • Governance

ESG Maturity Assessment also ensures that your organisation meets the reporting requirements of major ESG standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), and the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS).

These standards require companies to disclose information about their sustainability practices from the very highest level of governance. BoardClic’s ESG Maturity Assessment helps your organisation achieve compliance with the GRI framework’s reporting requirements, which includes evaluating the performance of your board. Additionally, it can help you meet the reporting requirements of CSRD and ESRS, which aim to standardise sustainability reporting across Europe.

Our ESG Maturity Assessment is intuitive and can be rolled out quickly without taking valuable time from board members and management. It lets you identify key ESG priorities, uncover strengths and weaknesses, and gain actionable insights. With this information, you can align towards a structured ESG strategy and steer your company in the right direction.
