protection of the interests of key shareholders, shareholders, as well as employees and other interest groups, the company's reputation and brand.

What do ESG and ISO 22301 have in common?
ISO 22301 is relevant to ESG reportig because it shows the organization's ability to respond to unexpected events and ensure the continuity of its key processes and services. ISO 22301 can be reported in the ESG report within the Governance section, specifically in the section on risk management and crisis preparedness. In this section, the organization should describe its business continuity policy and objectives, risk identification and analysis process, disaster recovery plans, and BCMS testing and improvement. It should also indicate the date of ISO 22301 implementation or certification and any results of audits or revisions.
