Why even SMEs need audited ESG accounts
ESG creates value for businesses of all sizes. Just like your financials, ESG accounts and the decisions you make are only as good as the data they are based on. And because it’s now a legal requirement for investors and lenders to know the ESG impact of the companies they’re supporting - ESG accounts need to be audited.

ESG is not the same as B-Corp or other consumer marks.
ESG accounts need to be audited for three reasons: because ESG is material to the bottom-line of your business and misrepresenting it can be detrimental to future growth; because bad press that contradicts supposedly positive ESG results can cause significant reputational damage to a company and its investors; and because it's now a legal requirement for investors and lenders to know the ESG impact of the companies they’re supporting
