University Essentials Business Sustainability Goals and Climate Action

Monday, October 24, 2022
60 minutes

Seven years ago, the Paris Climate Change Agreement was signed by 195 countries, signaling a shift in the public and private sector consensus on environmental, social and governance issues. In the absence of a singular global standard, the private sector response to implementing change to achieve reduced emissions, advancing social equity and improving transparency has grown, with sustainability reporting, science-based carbon targets, pledges for net zero emissions and racial inequity edicts going mainstream.

Join S&P Global Market Intelligence for an interactive discussion with experts from across our divisions to address the long-term effects of these emerging ESG trends and their implications for business and sustainability research. Attendees of this webinar will gain insights into the following:

  • Are current sustainable pathways feasible and tied to business growth?
  • How can companies align portfolios with carbon targets
  • Ways to identify best efforts to balance sustainability: Risk vs. Impact
  • Standardizing diversity pathways and seats at the table – probability vs. practice
