Booking Deadline: 16 October 2022

Understand sustainability disclosure regulations and get started with your ESG reporting.

Understand how to monitor, record and report your business’ sustainability efforts and create a roadmap specific to your business.

NI Chamber and Janice Daly CFA, Director Sustainable Finance and Investment at Grant Thornton, have developed an environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting training course to help SMEs understand ESG reporting and disclosure requirements and how to apply these to their business.

Organisations of all sizes and across all sectors are more conscious than ever of their impact and dependence on the environment and society and are increasingly scrutinised on how they are integrating ESG considerations into their operations.

ESG training will help you decode current and upcoming sustainability disclosure regulations, understand the ESG reporting landscape and apply this to your business and create an ESG reporting map specific to your business under expert guidance.
