A heartfelt thank you to everyone that attended our first Live LinkedIn session last week! It was a productive first session and confirmed how badly these types of open discussions are needed. The audience’s wide diversity – people from around the world and in various stages of their professional careers – also left an awesome impression on me. Everyone coming together to share insights, questions, and concerns on ESG & Sustainability.
I want to share a small sample of the questions I received:
.What are the key topics we should think about for each of the E, S & G?
.How can we act as a collective with a sense of urgency and move ahead on sustainability?
.What would your suggestion be for corporations and governments (especially those of the emerging markets) to push to start proactive climate action rather than relying on a reactionary process that has been quite prevalent so far?
.What advice can you give us as we begin laying out an ESG strategy and framework for our company?
.What’s your take on the recent politicization of ESG?
Unsurprisingly, other main topics of conversation were Greenwashing, Measurement, and Reporting – all areas of deep concern in the ESG & Sustainability space. We only scratched the surface of these important issues, and, in the interest of time, had to leave many unanswered questions for the next time.
