BDO is proud to launch our 2022 ESG (Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance) webinar series. Sustainability, or ESG, can appear to be a complex web of inter-related concepts and issues. We aim to break that down into digestible pieces, so you can get on top of the fundamentals and start driving change in your organisation, at any stage of your ESG journey.

Demystifying the ESG process

This webinar examines the impact ESG is having on organisations and will provide guidance for those embarking on their ESG journey. We will look at the nature of the business problem created by ESG, as well as the risks and opportunities associated with a commitment to act.

We will share examples of how some organisations have chosen to approach the issue – what commitments they make, how they measure performance and what formats they choose to communicate progress.
