Tax and the ESG agenda are inextricably linked.

The need for companies to ‘do the right thing by society’ has shone a light on their tax affairs. Meanwhile, governments are keen to drive tax transparency and to use tax as an incentive to help achieve their environmental and social ambitions.

At the same time, tax is itself an ESG metric. As stakeholders apply an ESG lens to their assessments of businesses, tax strategy and governance have become an important pillar of a firm’s ESG story and reputation.

As a tax leader, you must consider not just how to support your organisation’s ESG journey, but also how to add value to it. So, what is your role in supporting the ESG agenda in your organisation? And in such a vast area, where should you start? In our Tax Leaders’ ESG To-Do List series, we help to answer just that.
