We know the ‘why’ of ESG, but where do we start?

We recently hosted a webinar on formulating and executing your ESG strategy.

More and more, we are approached by companies and individuals who understand what ESG is and why it’s important but don’t know what needs to done. There are too many frameworks to count, and the metrics that can be tracked are endless. In addition, ESG lip service is no longer enough, we are expected to deliver and hit the outcomes.

The following panel of industry specialists gave their insights on how to kick-start your ESG journey.

Our panel of experts will explore the mechanisms needed to develop and deliver on a successful ESG strategy, that is relevant to your organisation and linked to your corporate strategy.  They will highlight the importance of your governance structures and look at goal management methodologies like OKRs to break down your ESG strategy into relevant and achievable goals and explore tools to track progress.
