OPEN MIC: NEXT IN TECH SERIES – Sustainability: How is ESG relevant to my business? (EN)

“Integrating ESG into the heart of its activities is now considered a long-term competitive advantage for companies.” – PwC Switzerland

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) has recently exploded in the business world, but what does it mean for your company?

SMEs and startups know they must consider ESG, but the concept may look unclear and complex. You may ask yourself: How is it relevant to my business? What are the regulations? How can I start this process?

In this practical session, we will dispel some myths about ESG, outline why it is relevant for all modern businesses and provide you with a concrete ESG Roadmap. We will answer the following questions:

  • What is ESG and why should I care?
  • What is the current legal framework in Switzerland and beyond?
  • What are the best practices for getting serious about ESG?
  • Which steps do I need to take to implement an ESG strategy?

Join Jérôme Raguin, founder and CEO of Ascentys-ESG, for this session, and learn how ESG can add value to your organization.

There’s time for discussion and questions.

Ascentys is developing an innovative platform that allows companies to automatically assess their ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) performance across 360 key performance indicators in a time-efficient, cost-efficient and transparent manner.
