In September 2022, KPMG released its high-profile Big Shifts, Small Steps — Survey of Sustainability Reporting 2022, which provides an analysis of the sustainability reports issued by 5,800 companies across 58 countries and jurisdictions. Against that backdrop, KPMG China released the Survey of Sustainability Reporting 2022 – China Insights to provide a deep dive into the latest developments and emerging trends in sustainability reporting in China. 

As the second largest economy in the word, China is increasingly making a global impact and the country’s enterprises are showing significant improvement in sustainability reporting. Nonetheless, the pressure on businesses to report on ESG metrics is only expected to grow as regulations evolve. 

For China’s enterprises, the ever-changing reporting landscape will require a change of mindset, to be inclusive, to push the boundaries and to make flexible plans according to their own stage of development. KPMG expects the global survey and this report on China insights to provide a global perspective for Chinese enterprises to assist in their future development.
