ESG Webinar Series: A Day in the Life of an ESG Manager (Online)



Event Description

When firm's decide to embrace ESG it involves many different activities and initiatives and raises many questions within the firm:

  • What ESG framework and standards should be used? What new data is required to quantify the firm's outcomes?
  • What changes to our current CSR programs should we make?
  • Are there new measuring and monitoring systems to design and implement?
  • How will the impacts of meeting ESG requirements be reported?
  • What are the most effective ways to message the firm's actions and impact to stakeholders?
  • How do all these efforts align with the firm's strategic goals?
