Operationalizing the ESG Business Imperative
November 4
11:00 AM
Time zone:

In this webinar, we look at the business value of ESG and outline the key steps in building the business case for operationalizing an ESG capability that satisfies reporting requirements and supports your business objectives.

While some view Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) requirements and reporting as merely an extension of earlier sustainability movements, there is a significant shift from the morality based thinking that drove those efforts to “do the right thing,” toward a view that ESG is beneficial to the business itself from an economic perspective. Companies can look proactively at ESG as a source of new opportunity for innovation in products and services and use this drive to adapt their spending and processes for more sustainability and social responsibility.

To go beyond meeting ESG reporting demands and also benefit from its ESG capability, the organization should build an integrated approach that supports business objectives, addresses uncertainty, and enables the organization to act with integrity. In other words, the ESG capability can and should contribute to Principled Performance.

Join us for a detailed discussion of how to build the business case for operationalizing ESG to drive beneficial business outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Outline the challenges in ESG and the failure of short-term thinking
  • Determine the business value of ESG
