Evolving reporting for a rapidly changing company

client objective

In recent years, Nielsen has navigated both the increasing complexity and changing expectations of ESG ratings and standards, while also rapidly evolving as a company—first completing the sale of NielsenIQ to emerge as a rebranded, media-focused company in 2021, and then becoming a private company in 2022.

Since 2020, BuzzWord has helped the company continue to advance and elevate its reporting through all the changes. Like many companies, Nielsen wanted its reporting to align with prominent frameworks—including GRI, SASB, and TCFD—as well as to be responsive to ESG raters. Now as a private company, Nielsen remains committed to ESG reporting and disclosure and continues to publish an annual ESG report.
