The talk will focus on the role of record keeping and information management in meeting the demands of gathering and reporting on ESG metrics. ESG represents a significant development in governance and reporting for businesses. Managers need to understand this and they need to understand what is required to report ESG metrics meaningfully, accurately and efficiently.

Such requirements are supported by the authority of sound information management processes, necessary for management to create a compelling ESG narrative, and the talk, drawing on an article recently published in the European Business Review, discusses how this could be delivered in practical terms, based on our real-world experience.
