David Harris speaks at the launch of LSEG's Guide to ESG Reporting

David, who is Group Head of Sustainable Business at LSEG, led the team that developed our ESG Reporting Guidance. In introducing it here and welcoming participants to the webinar, he explains why we believe the Guide is so urgently required, and why the breadth of our activities makes us ideally placed to provide it.

David also addresses a number of misconceptions about sustainability and climate change metrics, explaining for instance that ESG reporting is just as important for smaller companies as larger ones. As he emphasises, it is now in everyone’s interest that we move away from ‘pretty CSR reports’ towards hard, investment grade data.
