The recent crisis due to pandemic, climate change impacts, supply chain disruptions & unprecedented policy changes bring forth the value of embedding Environment, Social, Governance (ESG) in core business model and strategy. As much as it is relevant from business continuum perspective, it offers opportunities to reap the benefits of stronger growth prospects, enhanced operating efficiencies, stronger social licence to operate, enhanced staff retention, lower cost of capital, and, ultimately, a stronger and more sustainable competitive advantage.
ESG criteria are also being increasingly requested by conscious investors to screen potential investments and base investment decisions on how a company performs as a social and environmental steward.
Without an ESG Framework that encompasses corporate strategy, risk management, board oversight, performance and communication, companies are exposed to reputational and regulatory risk.
To equip corporate practitioners across industries with the attendees with approach to navigate the post Covid-19 struggle Confederation of Indian Industry is organising an online session on institutionalising ESG Framework and relevant ESG metrics.
The training session is split into three modules- Module-1 will cover key elements of ESG, history of ESG, modes of ESG ; Module-2 on ESG metrics will cover key ESG Indicators, Environmental Concerns and Trends, Social Concerns and Trends and Governance Concerns and Trends, Module-3 on ESG Framework, why is an ESG framework necessary and practical steps to include ESG framework for decision making..
