ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) Course Part 1

 

ESG Course Part 1 Brochure 

 

Environmental, Social and Governance is the collection of non-financial factors that are used to assess a company’s environmental sustainability, social impact and governance mechanisms. Investors are increasingly considering these factors to balance sustainable growth and maximization of profits. Environmental evaluation includes factors such as destruction of natural resources, emission of waste into water bodies, release of hazardous chemicals,
and destruction of natural habitats. Social evaluation assesses a company’s impact on its employees, customers, host communities and other factors such as inclusive policies towards minorities and marginalized groups. Governance goes back to the principles of corporate governance which include accountability, transparency,
responsibility and risk management. It is therefore imperative that companies embrace Environmental, Social and Governance reporting to ensure they balance stakeholder interests and shareholder satisfaction.

The Institute of Certified Secretaries has therefore designed this training to equip participants with the requisite knowledge on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG). This course will be delivered using adult training techniques and methodologies such as lectures, case studies, group discussions and scenarios analysis.

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

This course is aimed at equipping participants with skills to:-

a) Understand the place of ESG in business;
b) Do sustainable reporting;
c) Enhance ESG performance.

TARGET AUDIENCE

ESG presents potential benefits to companies as well as investors. Companies that embrace ESG build a noble brand that attracts investors and increases capital in the long run, while investors are able to reduce risks associated with investments that are not sustainable. This training is therefore most ideal for decision makers
within the corporate setting, as well as their advisors. Target participants include Board Chairpersons; Board
Members; Chief Executive Officers; Corporate Secretaries and investment professionals.

CERTIFICATION

Certificates of participation will be issued upon successful completion of the course.
