WORKSHOP

Translating ESG Reporting to Impact Reporting

ESG data reports attempt to capture critical indicators of a company’s non financial performance. Many investors believe that a company with poor ESG ratings is at greater risk of future financial problems than a company with similar financials today but markedly better ESG ratings. When used by investors, these ratings typically support passive investment filters; (e.g., select only companies whose ESG ratings are ranked in the top 50% of companies in the same industry). While a great step in the right direction, wouldn’t it be nice if these reports could be used to monitor company impacts and cajole them through market mechanisms to enact the behavior changes required to transform our economy into something more sustainable?

In this workshop attendees will learn why improving ESG data is critical to moving the economy towards a more sustainable form of capitalism, dive into the four problems with ESG data that prevent it from conveying impact and go through a practical program for companies and investors alike to convert their ESG data into high value ESG impact reports and ESG risk-adjusted financials.
