Sustainable Business Strategies and Reporting Excellence

Welcome to Morrow Sodali's Lighthouse Magazine, our quarterly publication providing insights into shareholder engagement, corporate governance, research, communications, M&A, IR and ESG. 
In this edition, Morrow Sodali's Senior Managing Director, Corporate Governance & Sustainability APAC, Justin Grogan, describes how a Voting Power and ESG Influence Analysis can help boards and management to understand the behaviour of their investors. 
We explore the regulatory crackdown on greenwashing by ASIC and the ACCC, emphasise the importance of accurate sustainability reporting and highlight how the new IFRS standards will integrate ESG data into company disclosures. 
Delving deep into the impact of the TNFD's new framework, we look at its links to the TCFD, and Morrow Sodali's role in helping facilitate transparency and engagement. As we recap the FY23 reporting season, we uncover some trends, surprises, and market dynamics, including the resilience of consumers and small cap companies in the post-reporting season. We also provide some valuable insights into crisis planning and communication as regulators increasingly focus on cyber resilience and operational risk management practices.
