Welcome back! After pausing our events for the summer, InterGen is stoked for a stacked September of programming.
ESG PowerPlay Series with Meghan Harris-Ngae of EY
Sustainability and environmental, social and governance (ESG) programs are key components of long-term value and business resiliency. ESG metrics provide a framework for investors seeking to invest in companies that are creating solutions to the challenges we face in today’s world.
Defined ESG standards will empower companies, providing objective data that reinforces the value of the work being done to build an organization’s long-term value and sustainability. It is likely that ESG metrics will become an expected part of a company’s financial reporting and an essential tool in measuring a company’s worth today, tomorrow and in the future.
If ESG is still a mystery to you or if you want to expand your knowledge, join our upcoming ESG Powerplay series. We are fortunate to have Meghan Harris-Ngae, Partner at EY share insights and practical guidance for businesses considering what ESG means for them in the context of the current crisis and beyond.
