ESG Factors and the Evolution of Sustainability Reporting

Thursday, October 4th, 2012, 09:30am - 12:30pm EST/ Streamed Panel Discussion: 7:00am - 9:00am PT / 10:00am - 12:00pm ET / 16:00 - 18:00 (Paris-Frankfurt)

Companies are increasingly looking at sustainability from a broader perspective and integrating environmental, social and governance factors into their core business strategy. As more organizations consider sustainability as essential to long-term value creation, the disclosure of ESG factors and sustainability reporting is evolving. Building upon what was already said at the April 11th 2012 Sustainability Reporting 1/2 Day Conference, participants at this roundtable will convene to discuss some of the challenges and pressure they face when trying to disclose their ESG performance and report on sustainability. 

 

  • ESG Factors: Evolutions and Trends
    • Why are companies reporting environmental, social and governance data? How willing are companies to report ESG data? Do they consider the long-term value of ESG reporting or is it because they have to?
  •  Materiality
    • What are companies reporting? Does it depend on how far along the company is with their sustainability reporting and dialogue with stakeholders?
    • What ESG factors are material for companies? For Investors?
  • Voluntary vs Mandatory Reporting
    • What does the current legal and regulatory landscape look like? In the United States? Internationally (Europe, South Africa, Brazil, Denmark...)?
    • What role do non-profit organizations and initiatives have in pushing the regulatory and policy agenda forward on ESG reporting? For example the Sustainable Stock Exchange Initiative. What do companies think of such Initiatives?
  • Towards Integrated Reporting
    • What is Integrated Reporting? How does it differ from other types of reporting? What are its advantages and inconveniences?
    • What is the practical organizational process of this new effort? Is a new team required? What about leadership? Who manages and coordinates this effort?

 

This roundtable discussion will take place in New York. The exact location will be confirmed closer to the date.
