Josina introduces us to the recent developments in corporate governance and reporting to protect retail investors, and the need for a holistic approach in the recent CSRD proposal, the EU legislation that aims to widen the NFRD's scope and ESG disclosure requirements. She welcomes Olivier Boutellis-Taft, CEO of Accountancy Europe to the show and poses him the question: what is the role of auditors and company boards in the face of global shortages of natural resources, and other key sustainability risks? Investors, more than ever, are looking for succinct and transparent reporting of companies’ environmental impact and risks.
