ESG & Sustainability Software: 2021 Benchmark & Investment Recommendations

Thursday, May 27, 2021

During 2021, large firms – both listed and private – will come under increasing pressure to disclose investment grade ESG data to financial investors, regulators and lenders. But few firms have the ESG management committee and data governance in place to make this happen let alone the software systems. 

Reliance on out-dated software applications designed to facilitate voluntary sustainability disclosures will not meet the new ESG disclosure requirements. Drawing on recent Verdantix research, this webinar will provide ESG and sustainability decision-makers with a benchmark of more than 45 ESG and sustainability software applications and recommend how firms should invest in ESGtech to ensure they can meet the new requirements of financial markets.
