Webinar (CPA Crossings): Ethics: Environmental, Social and Governance for Accountants


The course provides a concise overview of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) reporting — an emerging system of non-financial record-keeping and governance. Around the world, organizations of all sizes and kinds are under increasing pressure from regulators, consumers, employees, and other stakeholders to provide a fuller and more integrated picture of the way in which entities operate, invest, and create value. This includes taking into account how their operations impact financial, manufactured, intellectual, human, social, relationship, and natural capital. Participants will walk away with an increased situational awareness of ESG reporting, and an ESG starter strategy. This can be used immediately to position themselves for ESG success in an era of growing expectations for conscious capitalism, ethical investing, and moral leadership.

This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
