Non-Financial Reporting for Financials

As a financial, you are currently confronted with various new requirements that are non-financial in nature. Reporting on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data is or may become a part of your responsibility. 
With these increasing demands, new challenges arise, and we believe the finance department is in a unique position to respond. Companies are forced to disclose more information on their ESG performance due to new European Union regulations (e.g. the EU Taxonomy and the new Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD)) and increased investor focus and customer demand. Sustainability Reporting is crucial to increase the reliability and credibility of your organization.

This time Wesley Schulte talks to Tjeerd Krumpelman, Global Head of Advisory, Reporting & Engagement at ABN AMRO. How does this bank deal with Integrated Thinking and Integrated Reporting?
