Why is ESG on the agenda?

and what does an ESG Controller do?



In a world where sustainability, social justice, and corporate ethics play an increasingly important role – not least due to legislation in the field – there is growing attention around ESG – Environmental, Social, and Governance. But what does it actually entail for companies? The answer can be found, among other things, in the role of an ESG Controller.
An ESG Controller is responsible for monitoring and managing an organization’s activities and performance in these three key areas. An ESG Controller ensures data collection and analysis for reporting, provides guidance, and ensures that the company complies with all relevant laws and regulations, develops internal policies, engages with stakeholders, and assesses potential risks. License to operate – that’s why the ESG Controller is a crucial player. ESG controlling is a ‘license to operate,’ and it applies not only to companies subject to legal reporting requirements in these areas but also to smaller companies that must meet ever-increasing requirements as suppliers. Performance on ESG has become an important factor for investors who view sustainability and social responsibility as indicators of a healthy company. Moreover, there is growing pressure from both consumers and employees who expect companies to take active responsibility for their impact on the world. This makes ESG one of the most important topics for CFOs and their companies, which is why our extensive knowledge of the finance function is a crucial element when sustainability reporting is to be realized. Finally, an effective ESG strategy can lead to cost reductions through improved efficiency and resource utilization.
