Professional Development Session
TOPIC: ESG – Environmental Disclosure Requirements: What Is My Responsibility
SPEAKER: Steve Randall, MBA, Partner, Sikich
Topic summary: The US Securities and Exchange Commission is focused on implementing sustainability requirements that will have far reaching impacts, well beyond public listed corporations. While sustainability is important for future generations, the evolving requirements have made effective compliance a challenge for many companies. By adopting a comprehensive approach to risk management, organizations can efficiently meet regulatory obligations with an Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) program that is centralized, auditable and accurate, as well as provides visibility into third-party performance across the ESG spectrum. Sikich’s Steve Randall will discuss how your role can help provide guidance to ensure audit-ready data for your company’s ESG function.
