We believe in a voluntary, flexible and encouraging approach, where companies wishing to follow the guide can start reporting any or all of these data points at any time, presumably upon an annual basis thereafter. Companies can start by focusing on one or several data points that are most critical for their business and industry expectations.
We also encourage participating companies to use established reporting channels and schedules—rather than creating new ones—wherever possible. Current financial and non-financial reporting schedules are recommended.
Nasdaq Nordic listed companies are free to upload their ESG data in the ESG Data Portal, a centralized distribution point that offers investors access to standardised ESG data from Nordic listed companies, while listed companies are offered a platform to showcase their ESG data. Please contact Lise Mejlholm (email@example.com) if you are interested in learning more about the ESG Data Portal.
