ESG reporting is the collection and analysis of data on an organization’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards, crucial information for socially conscious investors.
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting is increasingly in the forefront as socially conscious investors, stakeholders and organizations include these factors in their analysis of business and organizations. As Alberta adds to its energy sector with sustainable production such as solar and wind, and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), organizations need a strategic approach to their ESG reporting.
This suite of courses is tailored to those who want better visibility of an organization’s impact in the ESG arena, as well as those pursuing a career in sustainability/ESG. They also benefit those responsible for ESG reporting and who want a better understanding of what goes into an ESG report.
In these courses, you will learn how to deliver the core content of a corporate ESG report, including analyzing and understanding relevant data. Delve into globally recognised ESG standards and sustainability frameworks to determine which standards are most appropriate to your organization and industry. Explore the links between data typically included in an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) study and the data reported in a corporate ESG or sustainability report.
