Understanding Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) and its Compliance


Instructor: Stanley Epstein 
Product ID: 706763
Training Level: Intermediate

  • Duration: 120 Min
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) has gained increasing attention over the past few years. Today many institutional investors will only invest in those companies that provide ESG performance reporting. ESG provides a set of standards for a company’s operations that today’s socially conscious investors use to screen potential investments in terms of how a company treats the environment, manages social issues (relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and the communities where it operates), and deals with governance issues.

Why Should You Attend:

This course has a three-fold focus;

  • Provide the participant with an understanding of ESG. Here we look at what ESG is, its evolution and why it matters. We look at this, using examples of three ESG incidents (the Deepwater Horizon oil spill; the Volkswagen emissions scandal and the Facebook – Cambridge Analytica debacle).
  • Show how an ESG framework supports a company’s overall risk management strategy/structure.
  • Provide the hands-on knowledge you need to conduct more effective ESG due diligence, and to make better investment decisions. Here we present a step-by-step guide on the actions you need to take to ensure that your company becomes ESG compliant. We conclude by examining some current ESG myths.

ESG is an increasingly popular way for investors to evaluate companies in which they might want to invest. On the flipside, ESG can also help investors avoid companies that could pose a greater financial risk due to below par environmental or other practices.
