The New Sustainability Environment
Generously sponsored by BusinessWire
Whether you work for a large, multi-national publicly traded company, a small private company, an academic institution or a government agency, stakeholders are increasingly demanding disclosure of your organization’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance information. From financial markets to customers to local government agencies, the demand for ESG information is broad and rippling through entire global supply chains. The growing interest in ESG information has resulted in a burgeoning group of entities that collect, evaluate and disseminate your ESG data with or without your involvement. Organizations need to prioritize and respond to the myriad of requests, as well as ensure data accuracy and transparency.
This program provided an overview of the growing trends in this field, presented the strategic business case for greater ESG disclosure, and demonstrated how influential stakeholders are using such information.
