ESG Risk in the Enterprise: Focus on the Governance
Environmental, Social & Governance – ESG – is a dominant focus in organizations as they strive to address the integrity of their values, commitments, and obligations within the organization and across the extended enterprise. In this third and final session of our webinar series in Addressing ESG Risk in the Enterprise we turn our focus at looking at the G in ESG, the Governance element.
Defining what Governance means in the context of ESG can be a challenge. While most agree that it’s a key part of ESG, defining the scope for an organization can be a challenge. There is also disagreement about where ultimate responsibility lies within the organization and across the extended enterprise. There is no doubt that companies need governance to enforce ethical corporate behaviors, both internally and with external partners. Additionally, while some areas of governance are voluntary, others are highly regulated. For example, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in the United States introduced requirements around financial disclosures, executive pay transparency, and more.
In today’s socially conscious market, companies will need to have clarity and communicate their approach to all areas of ESG, including governance. Join us to explore aspects of fraud prevention; anti-bribery and anti-corruption practices; tax transparency; financial controls; and more.
In this webinar, attendees will learn about the:
- Scope of ESG with a focus on the Governance metrics
- Key governance regulatory, reputation and brand drivers
- Importance of working across the extended enterprise
- Role of technology in managing governance metrics and risks
