Learn how to integrate ESG strategies into financial operations.

Businesses of all sizes are under increasing pressure from regulators, consumers and employees to consider how their operations impact environmental stewardship, social issues, animal welfare and political diplomacy. This CPA Ontario webinar will provide a concise overview of environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies and resources for accountants.

ESG is a system of record-keeping and governance that demonstrates and verifies an enterprise's commitment to a sustainable global economy. Participants will gain an increased situational awareness of green reporting and corporate social responsibility principles, and will create an ESG action plan that can be used immediately to transform corporate impact.
