Environmental, Social, and Governance Issues: A Business Imperative
Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance is more than an aspiration, and realizing it in real time is not easy. A well-designed ESG strategy can achieve meaningful improvements in corporate performance and provide real value to stakeholders through specific commitments to corporate responsibility. Any such approach, however, must be measurable, transparent, and accountable. Join experts from FTI Consulting, Christine DiBartolo and Ken Ditzel, and Lynn L. Bergeson, for a Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. (B&C®) sponsored webinar, “Environmental, Social, and Governance Issues: A Business Imperative.”
