ESG Fundamentals for Business Leaders

February 15

Gain an understanding of ESG, ESG issues, and how an ESG framework can be applied to manage the realities of today’s business.

As ESG disclosure regulations go into effect in major markets around the world, any public company, as well as organizations working with public companies, will face increasing expectations and pressures regarding their ESG performance and reporting. Are you working with any publicly traded or brand-name companies? Do you want to work with more of them? As ESG expectations increase across stakeholder groups, are you ready to address these pressures and requirements?

This presentation will provide learners with a fundamental understanding of ESG, ESG issues, and how an ESG framework can be applied to manage the realities of today’s business conditions and stakeholder expectations. This presentation will provide pragmatic, tactical, and real insight from the field regarding how companies can prepare to adapt and thrive in ‘the age of ESG.’

  • You will be able to describe what ESG is, why it’s relevant to your organization, and what you can do to address it today.
  • You will be able to discuss why ESG is top of mind for investors, customers, regulators, and, more broadly, stakeholders in general.
  • You will be able to explain the nuances between ESG pressures of publicly traded companies vs. private companies.
