Panel discussion: ESG data challenges for metrics that matter
Date & Time
Thursday, March 30, 2023, 9:35 AM - 10:10 AM
Description

• Importance of high-quality ESG data – companies, being measured by financial stakeholders; better decision-making; supporting the narrative for disclosure
• Metrics and Materiality – There are several reporting frameworks that companies report to, each with their own set of metrics; materiality helps take a deep look inward to help determine what ESG issues matter most
• ESG Data Collection – Tremendous effort goes into data collection and reconciliation from various sources; supply chain and other Scope 3 is even tougher
• Validation and Assurance – Requiring third-party assurance during data collection processes to avoid scrutiny
