The Environmental Social Governance (ESG) Reporting Landscape:
Today and Tomorrow
With the US SEC flirting with new requirements for nonfinancial reporting, it’s time to take a look at the Environmental Social Governance (ESG) reporting frameworks and standards on the market today. When it comes to reporting and disclosure, the office of the CFO is primed to take on these new responsibilities and public firms nationwide. You may be just learning about environmental, social, and governance reporting or you may have a working understanding and are looking to better understand the differences among the various frameworks. In either case, this presentation will provide you with additional context on the landscape that exists today and the consolidations happening in the future. The high level agenda will include: Definition of ESG pillars, key drivers of disclosure requirements, broad view of the sustainability landscape, profile of each of the major standard setting NGOs, and the road ahead.
