Contentive invites you to their event

What CFOs need to know about ESG reporting

About this event

According to a recent KPMG survey, 68% of respondents see financial disclosure of ESG impact as an opportunity to set them apart from competitors. Yet, organisations are struggling to successfully translate their efforts into reporting that showcase their successes.

With COP27 around the corner and new mandates starting to take form, organisations have an opportunity to be strategic about their reporting efforts and how they move forward with their ESG strategy. 

From implementing frameworks and policies to govern ESG reporting, to evaluating if organisations have the right data catalogue to support their reporting, finance teams have their work cut out for them.

Join this exclusive webinar from MHR and The CFO as we:

  • Discuss how comprehensive ESG reporting can help you attract investors and employees
  • Look at how to best consolidate and present ESG data
  • Investigate how finance teams can start or elevate their ESG reporting efforts
