Ernst Ligteringen is a global thought leader in policy, strategy, and technical development of sustainable business practice. As former Chief Executive and pioneer of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) – the globe’s leading standard for non-financial reporting – he has witnessed first-hand how ESG issues can create value, but also destroy it, in business. As Ernst explains, Volkswagen is only one example.
We sat down with Ernst, now member of our Strategic Advisory Board, to explore how ESG issues have shaped business over the past 20 years, and to consider what the future of corporate transparency looks like.
