Investor interest in sustainability continues to grow and the share of institutional assets that are managed with ESG issues in mind is rapidly increasing. Companies believe that they are adequately addressing investors concerns, but less than 1/3 of investors are satisfied with the data they’re receiving from companies on ESG.
The disconnect between investors and companies may be the lack of clarity around reporting and disclosures: what exactly do investors want to see? The Sustainability Accounting Standards Board may have a solution: a set of standards that helps companies disclose financially material, decision-useful ESG information to investors.
Board Leadership Program members are invited to join us for this one-hour webinar from Corporate Board Member and SASB to learn how to better evaluate and disclose financially material sustainability issues and how to prioritize ESG discussions in the boardroom.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
– Implement SASB’s industry-specific sustainability accounting standards
– Incorporate discussions around ESG as a priority in your boardroom
– Effectively communicating ESG performance to investors
– Improve your company’s ESG disclosure efforts
