ESG + Communications: Transforming a time of reckoning into a golden opportunity

Environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) isn’t just a buzz phrase anymore. It plays an increasingly important role in organizational reputation, valuation and success. And with the SEC’s proposed changes on reporting climate-related risks and greenhouse gas emissions, you can’t just rely on legal counsel anymore — comms needs to step up as a strategic partner to help eliminate empty ESG gestures and ignite action. Here’s what you’ll learn in this session:

  • Our moment of reckoning: Your role in supporting positive corporate change, communicating progressive governance and fostering conversation
  • How to help craft and share your ESG story to employees, customers and the media
  • Ideas to turn employees and subject matter experts into ESG ambassadors — and ideas to transform your owned channels like websites and social media into ESG hubs
  • How to work more closely with IR and other department to address the proposed SEC disclosures for investors
