Week 3: The Pathway to Reporting
As the last year has shown, ESG has only grown in importance with social considerations now being as relevant as environmental and governance ones. As a result, demand for ESG disclosure will only accelerate going forward. If you are in the early stages of your ESG journey, join us for a candid discussion with issuers who have recently published their inaugural sustainability reports. Discover how they started the process; which framework they used and why; how they delivered their message effectively; and the lessons they learned along the way.
Date: Thursday, April 29
TIme: 12:00 - 1:15pm ET
