The global regulatory, market and consumer trends are convergent: ESG is here to stay, yet it will evolve. Next Tuesday, 26th of July, Traent CEO Federico d’Annunzio and Elizabeth Lewis, Managing Director and Deputy Head of ESG at Blackstone, will discuss the directions of those changes with particular attention to the ESG non-financial data.
Blackstone, a leading global investment fund, will provide a perspective of capital providers committed to integrating ESG into their investment process. As the business leaders struggle to communicate their companies’ purpose and ESG efforts to investors, the webinar presents an excellent opportunity to get a first-hand insight.
A business landscape is continuously shaped by growing awareness, market demands, and regulatory pressure. In the coming years, the development of standardized sustainability disclosures will drive market integrity even further. In this context, building a solid ESG program becomes imperative.
Business builders acknowledge that ambitious targets are not enough anymore. Only those ESG investments backed by reliable data drive the change and create business value. However, the data’s authenticity, integrity and accessibility remain a pressing issue.
Turning raw data into value
Since ESG non-financial data constitute the mainstay of ESG programs, their verifiable soundness becomes a critical success factor.
In the recent ESG executive survey by Deloitte, 92% of respondents admit that their organization needs to invest more in technology to address the demand for consistent and reliable measurement, reporting, and disclosures. Therefore, it is likely that the increased focus on ESG matters from stakeholders will accelerate the adoption of data-driven innovations.
