The Business Case for Sustainability and ESG

Event Description

Remote Only Event. This program was originally scheduled for April 3, 2024 and has been rescheduled to May 6, 2024.

For the past decade or more, businesses, investors and others have recognized the value of environmental, social and governance (ESG) as part of corporate performance evaluation to assess the robustness of a company’s governance mechanisms and its ability to effectively manage its environmental and social impact. Many companies have integrated ESG reporting and sustainability efforts into their everyday operations and planning. Recently, however, some have questioned the value of these efforts. Join us for a panel that will describe what is meant by sustainability and ESG and what is the business case for them.
