[SPONSORED] ESG: Looking Back and Looking Ahead - 2023 Reflections and 2024 Predictions

When:  Dec 6, 2023 from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  ESG Professionals Group


Join representatives from Deloitte, KPMG, PwC, and Mark Mellen, Industry Principal - ESG  from Workiva, for “Looking Back, Looking Ahead” as they discuss the significant ESG moments from 2023 and their predictions for ESG in 2024.

In 2023, global businesses faced a turbulent landscape marked by geopolitical risks, inflation, energy price spikes, supply chain disruptions, and recession fears. Amid this uncertainty, new global ESG reporting mandates, like the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) demanded urgent action. 

Companies are grappling with aligning cross-departmental efforts, combining financial and non-financial disclosure, and considering assurance to prepare for the new requirements. The impact of ESG inaction can be stark. Accusations of greenwashing can threaten brand reputation, while non-compliance with ESG regulations can pose potential risks. 

This webinar highlights why 2023 was a turning point for ESG and emphasizes the need for proactive ESG initiatives particularly as work gets underway for the publication of the first CSRD-compliant reports in 2025. Such actions can help enhance corporate responsibility and can deliver tangible benefits such as improved customer retention, cost reduction, and risk mitigation.

ESG expectations and regulations are continuing to evolve and move forward. Hear from industry-leading professionals advising companies on how they can prepare for an integrated ESG disclosure. 

After this webinar, you can:

  • Discuss the significant ESG events of 2023, and what companies must start preparing for in 2024

  • Recognize the importance of governance structures supporting ESG performance and disclosure

  • Prepare for ESG disclosures

  • Summarize how technology investment can be crucial for coordination, transparency, and control in ESG

Workiva offers one complimentary CPE credit for this webinar.
