Driving consistency in ESG disclosures

About this talk

There is increasing pressure from investors and wider society on companies to demonstrate real progress on the commitments they have made on environmental, social and governance (ESG) themes. ESG considerations are increasingly important in identifying material risks and growth potential, which helps investors make better investment decisions. Yet it is becoming ever clearer that the proliferation of overlapping, voluntary ESG disclosure frameworks are preventing investors from forming a clear view on ESG performance. On this webinar, we will discuss the role investors can play in driving improvements in companies’ ESG reporting, and how they can better assess companies’ progress against their ESG commitments and targets. In addition, we will discuss the role World Economic Forum International Business Council (WEF IBC) Stakeholder Capitalism Metrics play in providing a global solution for more consistent, decision-relevant information to investors on long-term value creation. Speakers: Tom Brown, Emeritus Global Head of Asset Management, KPMG UK Gabriele Liotta, Global Leadership Fellow, World Economic Forum Meagan Andrews, Lead Investors Industries, World Economic Forum Rick Lacaille, Global Head of ESG, State Street Global Advisors
