Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) in high-risk industries is synonymous with sustainability; the ability to navigate through a series of interconnected risks and opportunities that create long-term value for stakeholders. So, understanding ESG is understanding the integrated nature of risk.
Effective management of ESG risks allows companies to lower their risk profiles, avoid negative consequences and build a reputable brand.
In this 60 min webinar, you will learn:
- What ESG is and why it is important to companies
- How companies can turn ESG management into a competitive advantage
- How to manage ESG risks
- If COVID-19 has helped or hindered the ESG agenda
After the discussion, there will be a live Q&A. It’s your opportunity to ask the experts any questions you have on ESG and its impact on companies. Submit your questions when you register or during the webinar.
