Member Notes:

A panel of sustainability communications experts untangling the complexities of ESG reporting and accelerating organizational transparency.

Corporate sustainability reporting has increased 60+% since 2018, but only 60% of Fortune 500 organizations have set public sustainability goals. Disclosing your organization’s Environmental, Social, and Governance data is imperative. Stakeholders (including customers, partners, investors, and employees) will use your disclosures to gauge your global impact and even your company’s financial value. Additionally, disclosing ESG data will assist you with compliance reporting and can help your organization meet societal expectations.

So where do you begin? How do you continue to grow your reporting efforts? If you’re new to ESG reporting, getting started can feel overwhelming. If you’re looking for ways to improve, maybe you’ve hit a dead end.

During this panel discussion, you will learn from sustainability reporting experts about best practices for articulating your organization’s ESG impact to stakeholders. Jennifer Clipsham, the Advisory & Communications Practice Lead for Anthesis, Jennifer Boynton, a Corporate Responsibility Manager from Stryker, and Andra Anderson, the Senior Director, Workplace Operations and Co-Founder of the ESG global committee at Sony Playstation will be sharing their insights on successful sustainability reporting strategies.
