ESG Ecosystem: Macro Perspectives

Investors, regulators, customers, and other relevant stakeholders have increased the urgency in their calls for increased ESG reporting in recent months. With signals that increased ESG integration into financial reporting is on the horizon, finance professionals are working to increase their acumen to help accelerate ESG reporting efforts in order to effectively tell their organizational ESG story. The ESG Ecosystem: Macro Perspectives Conference, held virtually on September 21 and 23, will answer top-of-mind questions that finance professionals are having:

  • Where to start;
  • How to capture, collate, analyze, and control ESG data;
  • Effective methods for approaching the frameworks;
  • How investors and ratings agencies use ESG information, and;
  • How to work with other professionals to quantify and communicate an organization’s exposure to climate risk.

ESG Ecosystem: Macro Perspectives will feature in-depth discussions from leading ESG standard-setters, investors, ratings agencies, experts in ESG integration with financial reporting, and other notable thought leaders.
