The agenda at a glance

Plenary Sessions:

Focusing on the Right Frameworks: Aligning your Company and Key Stakeholders Needs

There is a great variety of frameworks demanding business to deliver reports with ever-increasing levels of details and formats. Companies cannot report against all – there needs to be time to allocated to making change based on the data. Hear how companies are prioritising key frameworks for their business and stakeholders, and managing that both internally and externally


Purpose-Driven Reporting – Understand the Purpose, Then Shape your Reporting Strategy

Reporting is not an isolated process; it needs to be aligned with the company purpose. Businesses needs to avoid Purpose-washing, and by identifying the Purpose and building a strategy from that will ensure the business reports to a clear goal, ambition and vision

Theme 1: Data and Materiality

How Technology can Help Create a Global Standardised and Integrated Reporting Process

The need of accurate data is one of the biggest challenge companies confront today. There is a need to create consistency where there is a no standardise approach. Technology can help collate accurate and integrated data, from across different departments and regions, in a standardised approach. Standardising the internal process allows companies to save valuable time and resources

Reporting Against Differing Materiality Definitions: How AI and Technology can Help

Companies are inundated with frameworks, standards, ranking and survey requests. Some will have differing Materiality definitions and assessments. Hear how technology, AI and data analytics can add ease, speed and accuracy when reporting data.

Theme 2: Impact and Engagement

Information Does Not Guarantee Insight – What Does Impact Look Like Really?

Generic data and measurement can be useless without benchmarks to quantify impact. How do you join a KPI-led core business methodology to a social and environmental impact ambition? Should all impacts be monetised? How is this best approached to ensure you satisfy multiple stakeholders with differing expectations?

Putting a Value on the S in ESG

The Social metrics have always been the toughest for companies to measure and value. Hear how leading corporations are putting a true value on their impact to Society, the return to the business of this investment and how that can be benchmarked against their peers by external stakeholders

Workshop Sessions

TCFD Reporting: Accurately Reporting Future Risks, Impacts and Scenarios

Reporting, by its very nature, is a backwards looking exercise which makes the data collection and disclosure somewhat an easy task. Now companies are tasked with disclosing accurate future risks, impacts and scenarios. Hear how new tools and technology can help improve the accuracy of future climate scenarios and social risks. Get first-hand insight from investors as to what best-in-class looks like when it comes to TCFD reporting

SDG Impact: Moving from Activities and Outputs to Impacts and Outcomes

Companies need to move from activity-based reporting and communications to more meaningful quantified impact and outcomes. Assigning monetary outputs alongside SDG icons doesn’t cut it. Hear how your company can accurately report impact and change against the SDGs
