Executive Summary

Our research shows that companies increasingly see their climate strategy as a source of competitive advantage. So the success of your climate strategy hinges on how you measure up against industry peers, but accessing the necessary information to do this is not easy, especially when sustainability teams are under-resourced. Corporate executives therefore need to engage with climate benchmarking.

This webinar is for CSOs, Head of Sustainability/Net Zero/Climate, Chief Risk Officers, and Directors of Investor relations who are interested in understanding how climate benchmarking against their peers and competitors can help them do their jobs more effectively.
