Learn the Do’s and Don’ts of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting. ESG is on the mind of most organizations and an increasing number are integrating performance data into financial reports. Customers, stakeholders, and investors are increasingly seeking and relying on ESG data for decision making. To help avoid missteps, this session will cover how ESG reporting is currently expanding, current frameworks for reporting and what companies can do to establish effective governance over ESG reporting. Additionally, we will prepare you for the questions your external auditors could soon be asking. The presentation will include highlights from the newly released Center for Audit Quality (CAQ) ‘ESG reporting and attestation: A roadmap for audit practitioners’ (released Feb 2021).
