ESG Management

Deepen your knowledge of the challenges and opportunities of sustainability development.

The active integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects into all steps of the value creation process is becoming an increasingly important driver of business success. Important stakeholders such as customers, investors, governmental actors, rating agencies, but also employees, existing and potential ones, expect companies to improve their ESG performance and its disclosure. Our seminar targets all steps of the ESG management process from identifying material ESG topics and related information, its measurement and collection to its evaluation and internal and external reporting. We will also take a deep dive into regulatory requirements, as they considerably determine the data needed, and into organizing ESG management in terms of responsibilities, structures and processes.
