About Our Session
With the proposed SEC Climate Disclosure ruling and uncertainty around where the market will land, organizations are looking to take a pulse on their ESG readiness to comply with the broad scope of the proposed rules and identify opportunities establish foundational program components across governance, processes, data collection and control infrastructure, and technology enablers.
Many factors are driving an organization’s need to adapt to an ESG-friendly business model, including:
- Increasing expectations from investors, customers, employees, and partners to drive responsible growth and product development
- Regulatory compliance
- The criticality of potential innovation, expense reduction, and long-term growth
- Driving corporate cultures and values driven decision making
These factors are making the metrics, measurement, and reporting of ESG implementations a priority. After all, stakeholders need the right kinds of data to trust that these ESG implementations are successful and that they are driving an effective ESG framework for the business. But how can an organization accurately measure the effectiveness of these ESG implementations?
Risk Management and Internal Audit functions, in particular, are increasingly being tasked to measure, assess, and validate their organization’s ESG programs in a dynamic environment where there are a myriad of frameworks that lack consistency and ongoing regulatory guidance that is continuing evolve.
Fortunately, ESG includes a wide range of scoring categories and non-financial performance indicators to assess the sustainability of a business and the impact of the company’s products and business practices on the planet and society.
In this speaking session, professionals from the KPMG Risk Assurance service networks will discuss the evolving ESG agenda and demonstrate a methodology and approach for assessing and measuring a sustainability program. Speakers will talk through a methodology that focuses and builds on quick wins, a common architectural reference model to demonstrate critical components, and common technologies to support the needs of the Internal Audit and Risk Management functions.
