The Rising Importance of ESG: 2023 Report

This 2023 Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report provides a comprehensive overview of Nielsen’s ESG strategy, approach and performance, inclusive of 2022 data. Given the rising importance of providing frequent ESG updates on our progress and strategy for a range of our stakeholders, we plan to continue sharing ESG updates on an annual basis.

This report is organized around our six main ESG topic areas, consistent with previous ESG reports, and includes a narrative overview of each, along with supplemental data and information. In the Appendix of this report, we provide additional data disclosures on topics most relevant to Nielsen. We also provide addenda on two external reporting frameworks: the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
