Week 4: Taking Your Reporting to the Next Level
ESG has become mainstream and for any company keen to attract capital, sustainability has to be a priority. Many issuers are embedding ESG within the organization and effectively communicating their practices and progress externally thereby demonstrating value. If you are looking to take your sustainability practices to the next level, join us for a conversation with award-winning issuers and learn how they approach ESG as an organization; what makes their ESG approach and reporting stand out; and how ESG is leveraged in other areas of the company including investor relations.
