About the Program

Corporate ESG or Sustainability reporting is no longer a "nice to have," it is a "must." However, an annual ESG or CSR report is only one piece of a strategic process to attract and retain capital. This session will build on prior ESG discussions with a focus on effective engagement with financial markets and broader stakeholder community on sustainability topics. How can corporations effectively engage with ESG rating agencies, investors and other stakeholders to ensure ESG performance is accurately recognized?

NIRI Virtual assembled a great panel with a wealth of knowledge on all things sustainability and ESG. Join the session to gain valuable insights to drive improved ESG focus, reporting, engagement and disclosure. Learn more about the program here.
