DFIN's Inaugural ESG Pulse Report Reveals Companies Unprepared for Reporting Changes

CHICAGO, Feb. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The inaugural DFIN ESG Pulse Report, released today by Donnelley Financial Solutions (NYSE: DFIN), a leading risk and compliance company, found that more than 90 percent of business leaders surveyed believe that Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) issues are a moral and financial imperative but are unprepared for the upcoming reporting requirement changes from entities like the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The DFIN ESG Pulse report provides our clients with the right information to better understand and gauge the ESG market.

The report was commissioned by DFIN and conducted by Morning Consult and leverages DFIN's deep ESG expertise as a provider of ESG solutions to public and private companies. Key ESG decision-makers were surveyed to assess focus, change, responsibility, and collaboration across finance, HR, and marketing/communication professionals in the U.S. and U.K. markets.  

According to the report, executives find the current ESG reporting too burdensome (90 percent) and say they need assistance from third parties (80 percent). However, while there has been an increase of ESG focus, traction, and investment over the past two years, an even greater proportion (75 percent) believe that ESG reporting will increase further in the next three years.

Other Key Highlights from the Pulse Report

"The global ESG market outlook has gained significant traction in the past few years?and it's still on the rise," said Craig Clay, president of Global Capital Markets at DFIN. "Business leaders are increasingly seeking expertise, insights, and solutions to help them make informed decisions as they are developing their ESG plans and strategies. The DFIN ESG Pulse report provides our clients with the right information to better understand and gauge the ESG market, execute successfully in the ESG space, and report on those outcomes."
