ESG Controlling Practitioner

Course Type: Online

Bureaucratic beast? Climate saver? Necessity or opportunity? Well-intentioned but poorly executed? Opinions on ESG (Environmental Social Governance) vary. However, regardless of personal opinion, one fact remains: ESG presents a massive challenge to the business world.

Climate change, the emerging supply chain legislation, pressure on financial market participants, and consumers’ value perceptions significantly influence companies. These companies must now, in addition to their financial results, also make their impact on the environment and society measurable – along the entire extended value chain.

In this course, you will learn in four practical morning sessions how to navigate through the regulatory jungle, understand which regulatory requirements are essential, and most importantly, how to implement and automate ESG reporting and necessary controlling in your company.

Become an “ESG Controlling Practicioner” and shape the sustainability transformation for your company!
