Demystifying ESG risks and opportunities for business sustainability with BBC Academy – ESG and Sustainability Workshop

Join us for our ESG and Sustainability workshop on Thursday Nov 23, 2023 at 13:00:00 to 17:00:00 MYT at WeWork, Equatorial Plaza, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur 50250.

Table of Contents

The global investment and corporate sectors have recognised that companies that benefit society also excel in business. Once optional, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes are now required due to investor, consumer, and employee demands for good ESG impacts. Contributing to society and the environment is no longer an option but a requirement. ESG frameworks improve transparency, objectivity, and accountability—however, varied frameworks, various reporting standards, and the growing ESG landscape cause complexity and uncertainty.

This workshop thoroughly examines ESG and sustainability reporting, stakeholder engagement, and rising global trends like the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), whether you are an experienced sustainability practitioner or new to the area. This workshop will help you understand ESG, navigate the confusing language of the ESG world, and lead your business in constructing a high-impact ESG programme.
