Developing Effective Sustainability/ESG Strategies and Reporting


Sustainability & ESG (Environmental-Social-Corporate Governance) are key success factors for any business, but at the same time, they pose a great challenge. Stakeholder pressures, an increasingly stringent legal framework, growing customer and societal demands, financial pressures and the dynamic role of investors are forcing the transition from traditional models to new approaches based on building stakeholder trust through transparency, self-commitment, accountability and two-way communication.

Managers start to understand the imperative of Sustainable business but, the integration of practical Sustainability practices within business is still unclear and complicated. New and innovative ways are therefore needed to ensure the integration of sustainability, in line with global best practices and upcoming EU Directives.

The seminar focuses on sustainability strategy formulation and the processes that enable participants to successfully integrate sustainability into their organizations. It includes a wide range of new concepts, best practices, practical tools, new standards and EU directives (NFRD, CSRD). Participants will learn how to communicate effectively their performance through Sustainability reports, as per the new GRI standards released in 2021.
