Matheson recently authored an article for IFLR’s ESG EMEA Report 2022 which discusses the role of corporate governance in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) and explains why boards need to be proactive, prepared and well informed when it comes to successful ESG reporting.
The article looks at the ESG-related legislative developments that are representative of the growing focus, and indeed scrutiny, on ESG at a global and national policy level.

The article also explores the overwhelming factor for successful ESG reporting - a well-structured board that possesses the necessary acumen to ensure ESG risks, controls and processes are managed appropriately.
