Key takeaways from our discussion:
- CFOs are increasingly responsible for greenhouse gas accounting and reporting
- Reporting is just the first step: driving action through real emissions reductions is what ultimately matters
- Successful ESG reporting startups will present a company’s data – and explain how to improve metrics
- Specific, real data is essential for making progress: companies using industry estimates can’t demonstrate reductions
- Expect lots of acquisitions from the ESG measurement and carbon accounting space – big players eating smaller fish
- Massive opportunities in insurance and predictive analytics for climate and supply chain risk
