Metrics, standards and disclosure: Inside the changing world of ESG
December 17, 2019
Investors are asking and companies are reporting, but are they on the same page? As mainstream investors increasingly view companies’ ESG data as a proxy for risk and opportunity, corporate reporters are (finally) finding themselves on the front lines of investor relations.
But the ESG reporting world remains a cacophony of metrics and standards, not to mention different levels and types of disclosure. How can we harmonize the market with more frameworks, guidelines and standards emerging in the sustainability field?
In this one-hour, interactive webcast, we’ll explore some of the issues and challenges confronting corporate reporters on sustainability issues. You’ll hear the latest developments, emerging trends and practical solutions on such topics as:
- How large institutional investors are integrating sustainability (ESG) information in investment and engagement decisions?
- What’s the strategic fit of reporting standards and other frameworks including GRI, SASB, CDP, TCFD and the SDGs in the emerging landscape?
- What would it take for investors to get comparable, consistent and reliable ESG data?
- What would it take for capital markets to award sustainability leadership?
Join us for what promises to be an enlightening conversation with sustainability and global finance leaders on what astute investors and sustainability professionals need to know about the new normal of ESG disclosure expectations, standards and metrics.
