2. Acknowledge the data iceberg below the surface

3. Urgently design the right tech foundation

63%

of companies say that measuring ESG data continues to be a big challenge despite making technology advancements.4

81%

of CEOs are using tech to collect and manage organization-wide ESG data; yet only one-quarter of these say they are managing it at an advanced level because they lack the proper foundation.4
