PIP19 - ESG data challenges: Getting the most out of financial information

Presented by

Kris Douma, Director of Strategic Projects, PRI

About this talk

The TCFD has shown that there are more than 400 reporting standards just for climate-related issues. For ESG in general, there are even more, which is not in the interest of either companies or investors. This session will explore: • the need for a global, standardised and comparable ESG reporting standard; • the PRI asset owner consultation and the work of the PRI with CFA, both indicating that the quality of ESG data is now the major obstacle for responsible investment; • the high level ESG reporting principles outlined in a recent paper published by a group of 7 investor organisations. Patrick de Cambourg, President, Autorité des normes comptables Lila Karbassi, Chief of Programmes, UN Global Compact Tim Mohin, CEO, GRI Egon Vavrek, Director, ​APG Asset Management Asia Moderated by Kris Douma, Director of Strategic Projects, PRI
