About this Conference

This event will go through a step-by-step guide in how to create and implement your ESG framework, covering the basics of ESG, including its importance, legislative requirements, and its impact on businesses.

We'll discuss what you need before starting, such as company policies and understanding your company’s environmental impacts.

The workshop will guide you through conducting a materiality assessment, establishing a baseline to understand your current position, setting specific and measurable ESG goals, and how to effectively measure, monitor, and report on your progress.
