About the Seminar
Conducting an ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) audit is essential for several reasons, as it helps organisations assess and improve their sustainability and ethical practices.
ESG audits help identify and mitigate various risks associated with environmental, social, and governance factors. By addressing these risks proactively, organisations can avoid potential legal, financial, and reputational consequences.
Many investors and stakeholders are increasingly interested in the ESG performance of companies. Conducting an ESG audit and transparently reporting the results can attract responsible investors and enhance relationships with stakeholders, including customers, employees, and community members.
ESG audits also help to ensure that an organisation is in compliance with relevant regulations and standards related to environmental, social, and governance issues. This reduces the risk of legal and regulatory penalties.
