Preparing for sustainability reporting

what you need to know, where you need to start and what good looks like

Organizations have a opportunity now to prepare for new regulations around sustainability reporting, and commit to transparency and accountability. We already know that sustainability reporting will consider a range of environmental, social and governance (ESG) areas. Certainly a starting point would be to identify such metrics which are relevant for the organization and the context within which it operates, but what metrics?

 

This event will provide organizations with guidance on where to start on the road to sustainability reporting – to meet relevant stakeholder needs, wants and expectations of such sustainability reports, no matter the regulatory environment within which the organization operates.
