Synopsis and overview of the session
As ESG (environmental, social and governance) concerns move higher on the board’s priority list, ESG metrics simultaneously become more critical. With ESG one of the identified most significant business risks in 2022, measuring and reporting on your ESG performance is becoming non-negotiable for organisations wanting to evidence their credentials around integrity, sustainability and compliance.
Metrics focusing on the “G” in ESG can be the hardest to pin down. Governance broadly focuses on key issues including structure and oversight, codes and values, transparency and reporting and cyber risks and systems.
Focus Network, in partnership with Diligent, will bring executives together to discuss:
- The metrics to quantify performance as it relates to the G in ESG
- How the board oversees governance
- Does your organisation have clear value and purpose?
- What reporting do you produce on ESG?
- How often do you audit your ESG practices?
