Reporting Companies Account for 3/4 of Scope 1 Emissions

In the realm of sustainable development, the quest to measure and assess Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) impacts confronts a complex global challenge.

Reflecting on global corporate emissions, it’s notable that among the roughly 40,000 to 45,000 publicly listed companies (as estimated by the World Bank), only about 17% report their direct greenhouse gas emissions or Scope 1 emissions.

While this fraction appears small, these companies are responsible for a substantial 74% of the Scope 1 emissions of all listed companies.
