Over the past year, there has been increased focus on Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) issues. As investors and rating agencies are demanding ESG reporting, the SEC and other agencies are focused on the accuracy and transparency of disclosures that companies are making related to their ESG-related policies and practices.
As companies consider how to develop internal controls related to ESG measurement and disclosure there are some very clear parallels to SOX programs.
Join us for our latest installment of our Future of SOX webcast series as we explore the evolving role that internal control functions will play in an organization’s ESG strategy. Specifically, we will discuss:
- What is ESG and why it is now important to the risk function
- The changing ESG regulatory environment
- Implementation approach
- Internal control considerations
- Example of ESG disclosures.
