Description

The investment world places high value on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) responsibility and reporting. In fact, despite the COVID pandemic, ESG investments were set to grow by 40% in 2020.  However, navigating the myriad ESG reporting schemes remains complex, confusing, and time-consuming — for seasoned ESG managers and newcomers alike.

Every company’s ESG path is unique, but one commonality is identifying which sustainability metrics to prioritize.  There are many ways to assess this — through benchmarking, gap analyses, evaluating risks & opportunities — but one of the more common methods is the principle known as materiality (e.g., what ESG topics are ‘material’ to your company).

Join SCS Global Services and Owens Corning for a deep dive into how to prioritize ESG topics and position your company for success. In this 45-minute presentation you will:

  • Learn methods for establishing ESG priorities​.
  • Understand the value of conducting materiality assessments​.
  • Connect ESG priorities with corporate goals and reporting.

Description

Independent assurance of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) information contained in your Sustainability or CSR Report provides an increased confidence in your organization’s reporting to both internal and external stakeholders. The assurance process is designed to detect calculation errors and weaknesses in management systems so they can be corrected prior to issuing your final report. Providing investors with independently audited ESG information will both mitigate ESG risks associated with investor relations and increase your score with ESG rating agencies. Here we outline the value of third-party validation that data is accurate, reliable and material to all stakeholders.

Join SCS Global Services, Owens Corning and Hewlett Packard Enterprise for an in-depth look at the benefits of report assurance as it relates to the latest developments in sustainability reporting. In this 45-minute presentation you will learn how to:

  • Increase confidence in your disclosures and resiliency to ESG risks with investors and ESG rating companies.
  • Improve your ESG rating with CDP, Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), MSCI, Sustainalytics, ISS, and other ESG rating firms.
  • Validate your reported data as accurate, reliable, and material to all of your stakeholders.
  • Ensure your reporting is aligned with the various international reporting frameworks.
  • Hone your organization’s sustainability strategy by measuring against AccountAbility’s Principles of Materiality, Inclusiveness, Responsiveness and Impact.
