In this webcast, Daniel Klier, CEO of ESG Book, walks us through the key challenges facing the world of ESG, as well as potential solutions to the lack of relevant data, disclosures, and the growing maze of regulatory frameworks.

Sustainability has become a key focus for firms, investors, and regulators. 2021 saw $523bn in global green bond issuance, according to the Climate Bonds Initiative, and assets under management compliant with the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) reached $121tn, more than doubling since 2015. 

However, the progress we’re seeing in the sustainable finance and ESG markets is being hamstringed by an ever-growing alphabet soup of reporting standards, inadequate rates of firm sustainability disclosures, and a lack of access to ESG data. Increasingly, firms and investors are looking towards external providers to help navigate these challenges.

In this session, we will cover:

•The key data challenges facing sustainable finance markets and ESG funds;

•The growing need for convergence across disclosure and regulatory frameworks;

•And the work being done to provide firms and investors with better ESG data management, disclosure, and analytics.
