Each year, thousands of companies worldwide are rated by scores of agencies on their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. Such ratings have direct implications for companies worldwide in terms of reputation, cost of capital, and stakeholder value creation. As the field continues to evolve and survey fatigue intensifies, public and private companies are asking critical questions about the rigor, transparency, and volatility of ratings, now and in the future.

How will a new generation of rigorous, transparent, and credible ratings help drive sustainable business practices, good governance, and healthy financial markets?

Join a discussion between BSR and the Global Initiative for Sustainability Ratings (GISR) about these issues, the work of GISR, and the architecture of an emerging ratings standard.

Speakers

  • Dr. Allen L. White, Cofounder and Former CEO, Global Reporting Initiative; Cofounder and Director, Corporation 20/20; Founder and Co-Chair, GISR
  • Mark Tulay, Program Manager, GISR; former senior executive, RiskMetrics
  • John Hodges, Managing Director, BSR
