ESG and Diversity Data: What does good look like?
When: Monday 23rd May, 2022
What time: 09:00 - 10:00 EST / 14.00 - 15:00 GMT
As public and investor demands for ESG and diversity credentials increases, the market is flooded with data sources and different frameworks for organizations to adopt. On top of this, the lack of standardization makes it almost impossible to benchmark and compare.
Our institutional investor clients are finding it increasingly hard to cut through the noise and understand which data points really matter.
Our manager clients are struggling to understand which data points really matter to investors and which frameworks they should be adopting.
In this webinar our expert panel of industry speakers will discuss what good could look like. They will outline some of the work they are involved in across the industry and give their take on how to approach the huge topic of ESG and Diversity data.
