This masterclass will give you an overview of what ESG is and how it has evolved. It will outline who uses ESG metrics and approaches, outline some of the lessons learned and best practice that has emerged, and where, when, and how to integrate them into your business activities. The masterclass will look at ESG through the lenses of investors, shareholders, stakeholders, employees, customers, suppliers, organisations and government.
It will highlight why it is important for those various groups, what their main motivations are for using ESG and what metrics are important. It will also give guidance on how to determine what is important to focus on to enable you to implement, incorporate and embed appropriate practices and thinking within your organisation.
