Meet upcoming ESG reporting regulations with ease using the right ESG data strategy

7 December 2023, New York 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm EST
In partnership

Dinner Location: Benoit

Welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with IBM and Cognizant.

Meeting ESG reporting regulations is often seen as a burden to a company, but it should also be seen as a strategic imperative and a business opportunity. And although 90% of business leaders acknowledge this importance, only 60% have a sustainability strategy, according to Forbes.

ESG reporting regulations such as the SEC climate risk disclosure and the California SB253 are fast approaching, with many multi-national companies already needing to comply to other regional requirements such as the CSRD.

Companies must develop a sound ESG data strategy to automate collection and management of ESG data, or risk being burdened with an overwhelming amount of manual efforts to meet the new rules and requirements. These same data can also be a goldmine to help determine the most effective pathways for a company to meet its ESG goals.

Join IBM, Cognizant, and your industry peers to find out. Learn how to think proactively by pairing the right technology with the right strategies to reduce manual burden and streamline your compliance process.

We hope to see you in New York City!
