ESG: The time to report is now


Time:2:00 PM EDT/11:00 AM PDT

Duration:60 minutes 

The ESG reporting landscape continues to evolve and influence strategy and communications across all industries. We are bringing together experts to discuss demands for change and consistent standards from investors and other stakeholders. 

The webcast, intended for companies in various stages of their reporting journeys, will also cover broader ESG issues among the investor community. Among those are calls for increased transparency and disclosure as a result of events such as the recent cyber-attacks, as well as the rising power of a new kind of investor such as Engine No. 1.

The answers and counsel you seek will be provided in this webcast presented by FINN Partners.

The lessons and questions addressed during these 60 minutes will include: 

• Expert perspectives from an ESG practitioner and a leading ESG disclosure standard on how companies can lead through ESG policies, actions and transparent disclosure.
• What is the value in ESG reporting?
• Which reporting standard should your company follow and why?
• How can my company tackle barriers to reporting?
• Are we finally on our way to one reporting standard?
• What does the future hold for ESG?
