ESG Bites: Leveraging research to drive your social impact strategy
Don’t miss the annual Business for Societal Impact (B4SI) event providing inspiration as you look forward to 2024!
In 2023, the ‘new normal’ might be characterised by an increased awareness of the pervasiveness of societal issues and the need to reconsider corporate approaches towards these challenges as a core business function. By many measures inequality has continued to rise, and global growth predictions are worsening.
In the reporting landscape globally, companies are drawn to further disclosure of their community efforts through the lens of materiality and the resources required for increased environmental reporting in some cases risks social action being deprioritised.
B4SI provides practitioners with the tools and frameworks necessary to navigate this landscape. Collectively we advance the conversation by continuing to highlight the relevance of community investment activity and developing further frameworks and tools that sustain strategic management of social impact relevant to societal issues and a company’s material risks.
With this context, we have the following agenda planned for this year’s annual event:
Camille Putois, CEO of Business for Inclusive Growth (B4IG), part of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) will speak on the topic of the ‘Taskforce on Inequality and Social-related Financial Disclosures' (TISFD) and hear from experts across the region through two panel sessions.
Business for Societal Impact (B4SI) Is the global standard for measuring and managing corporate social impact. Learn more at www.b4si.net.
