Join the CEOs of BSR, GRI, and SASB to discuss the role of reporting in the context of COVID-19 and hear early lessons on what the pandemic is teaching us about materiality, disclosure, stakeholder engagement and systems thinking.

The webinar will highlight common values when it comes to reporting and how different views of materiality complement each other. Panelists will also unpack the longer-term implications for sustainability reporting, given renewed emphasis on ESG issues, which stands to catalyze more resilient business decision-making through alignment of financial and nonfinancial reporting.

Note: There will be a follow-up 'Strengthening ESG Reporting and Performance in the COVID-19 Era' webinar on June 17 with HKEX, APG, and Singapore Exchange to allow us to continue to explore sustainability reporting in the COVID era -- with an in-depth discussion from the stock exchange and investor perspectives about how these issues and trends need to be applied in order to strengthen ESG reporting and implementation practices.

Speakers

  • Aron Cramer, President and CEO, BSR
  • Janine Guillot, CEO, SASB
  • Tim Mohin, Chief Executive, GRI
