Our EMPOWER Partner KPMG recently released Anchoring ESG in Governance, a new report on embedding sustainability within organizations. Sustainability is growing in strategic importance for companies, with increasing reporting requirements on environmental, social and governance (ESG) as well as other demands on corporate structures regarding sustainability.

KPMG has observed that both corporates at the beginning of their sustainability journey and those active in this domain for many years are asking themselves how they can best set up their sustainability focused organization to work properly at all levels of responsibility, including the management and supervisory boards, executive committee and business functions.

To understand this better, KPMG conducted 50 interviews with chief sustainability officers and managers in this field to find out how sustainability focused organizations in general and group sustainability units in particular operate. They examined how such units are configured at present, what makes them successful and, above all, how they plan to develop in the future.
