Recorded Webinar: ESG standards and taxonomies – A progress report

15 June 2023

The development of ESG reporting and disclosure standards and taxonomies has progressed rapidly over the past few years, yet there is still no certainty on whether there will ever be measures that can be applied on a global basis. The EU leads the way in terms of ESG investment and regulation, ahead of Asia-Pacific and North America, begging the question of whether EU standards and taxonomies will become de facto across capital markets.

This webinar will review progress on ESG standards and taxonomies, consider where and how they are being used, and discuss why now is the time for financial institutions to prepare for further change. The webinar will also touch on technologies, solutions and services that can help firms stay current, and provide practical guidance on compliance, standards selection and taxonomy implementation.

Listen to the webinar to find out about:

  • The state of play on ESG standards and taxonomies
  • Ongoing progress in different jurisdictions
  • How to manage multiple standards and taxonomies
  • Impact on banks data and processes
  • Helpful technologies, solutions, and services
  • Benefits of getting it right, penalties of getting it wrong
