As companies increase the amount of information they disclose related to Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) issues, the SEC and other agencies are focused on the accuracy and transparency of disclosures that companies are making to their ESG-related policies and practices.
As a result companies need to consider how to develop internal controls related to ESG measurement and disclosure and there are some very clear parallels and lessons learned from SOX programs.
Join us for the latest installment of our Future of SOX webcast as we continue the ESG control conversation and explore some practical lessons learned as companies develop internal controls around their ESG disclosures. Specifically, we will discuss:
- Updates on the rapidly changing ESG regulatory environment
- The rationale behind starting to enhance internal controls now
- Practical advice on lessons learned from implementing SOX programs and applying them to ESG internal control programs
- Example process and controls for key non-financial metrics
