Delivering ESG Assurance in the New Era of Corporate Integrity

October 12 @ 10:00 am 11:00 am Chicago

ESG – Environment, Social, Governance – is a critical focus for organizations worldwide and across industries. ESG has been a buzzword for a while now. Still, while it may already be a reality for big businesses and certain industries, the truth is that most companies are still scratching the surface. Pressures come from all angles: corporate investors, stakeholders, boards, regulators, employees, customers, partners, and society in general. Organizations have to do something for ESG, and the pressures are mounting.

At the end of the day, ESG is about the organization’s integrity. What the organization commits to in policies and ESG statements in the context of environmental, social, and governance practices has to be a reality and not smoke and mirrors. Organizations must demonstrate they are serious about their ESG commitments and live by them. There is an ongoing fight to address greenwashing. ESG assurance is a growing requirement for organizations. To stay ahead of the curve, join GRC Expert, Michael Rasmussen, as he shares how organizations should approach ESG assurance in this new era of corporate integrity.

In order to be awarded the full credit hours, you must attend the entire session and answer at least 3 of the polling questions. Once the requirements are met, your CPE certificate will be available to download in the webinar. Participants will earn 1.0 CPE credits.

Learning Objectives:

  • How ESG starts with the G in good governance practices
  • How to clearly define ESG objectives as a starting point to deliver assurance
  • From there, how to address uncertainty and act with integrity throughout the business and its relationships to avoid greenwashing
  • The role of content and technology in maintaining ESG integrity and assurance
