At a recent keynote speech in London, Solidatus Co-CEO Philip Dutton said that "the demon of complexity is the thing we’re all struggling with.” But do the trappings of pivoting towards a more data-driven business really have to be so complex?
Meeting the requirements of Environmental Social Governance (ESG) criteria marks a commitment to building a more sustainable organisation and ultimately a climate positive company. But with so many standards, disclosures and rating methods, alongside the new data sources required to meet them, how do you understand how data requirements intersect whilst maintaining high-level control?
For the Chief Data Officer there’s a lot open to interpretation when it comes to their environmental, social and corporate governance obligations and objectives. Here are 7 areas that are key to successful ESG strategy and practice.
"The immediate challenge with ESG is to present something that is at least understood and defined for yourself. If you can explain what you are putting forward as a global entity in the first instance, you have hope." - Philip Miller, Co-CEO of Solidatus.
