This white paper first appeared on


Aligning ESG & Financial Reporting

There is now more than ever a clear driver for organizations to develop robust sustainability and ESG strategies with transparent reporting to stakeholders.  Global institutional and retail investment is surging into assets tied to ESG principles and the focus on the quality of ESG disclosures is only increasing.  The link between how an organization carries out its business and how it performs is increasingly being scrutinized.

Many organizations have reaped the benefits of voluntarily disclosing details about sustainable operations.  However, significant change is on the horizon, regulation is imminent and investors, employees and the public are taking more interest in the data points being published, fueling a ‘New Imperative’ for CFOs.

OneStream conquers complexity in the ESG & Financial Reporting processes by delivering through a unified Intelligent Finance platform supporting financial consolidation, financial, statutory, and management reporting, planning, forecasting and analysis.
