Awakening Investor-Grade ESG: Exploring Challenges and Solutions
This panel will discuss the evolution of corporate ESG reporting towards decision-useful data for investors and long-term value creation. As more investors are integrating ESG, what solutions are available to make corporate reporting and data more accurate, trustworthy, comparable, and material? This session will showcase some of the best practices and efforts in meeting these goals, and also issue a challenge to companies to adopt these practices in 2019. The session will deliver insights on assurance practices, the SASB Standards, and how to move towards long term value creation and away from short term thinking at both sides of the puzzle (publicly traded corporations and investors).
