ESG Reporting Specialist Training Program

Developing professionals in Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting that help organizations thrive and achieve their goals through an in-depth training program.

Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)

ESG reporting has developed into a widely accepted framework in organizations’ strategies to achieve organizational goals and create enterprise values. All corporate stakeholders, including clients, partners, employees, the government, people, and the environment, are considered in decision-making for numerous stakeholders when identifying, evaluating, and managing sustainability-related risks and opportunities besides investment. ESG reporting is crucial for a company’s credibility as a global model for decision-making by several influential stakeholders.
Reporting is rapidly becoming an integral part of what it means to be a reputable and well-governed company, with the world’s largest corporations disclosing their sustainability and ESG performance. A well-governed and respected company in modern and sustainable business reports its sustainability and ESG performance internally or externally. Today’s largest companies are making those disclosures.

The Purpose of the Training Program

This professional training program aims to give organization employees the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to ESG needs and use this knowledge to conduct more efficient due diligence, read and comprehend existing ESG reports, review and edit ESG reports, perform ESG reporting, and assist their organization in making better investment decisions.

DEISO's ESG Reporting Specialist Training Program

DEISO has developed the ESG Reporting Training Program to develop professionals from various disciplines with solid knowledge and skills in ESG and ESG reporting. By looking at the fundamental concepts of ESG reporting, the key stakeholders, existing frameworks, and what you can expect in the future, we will provide a solid foundation for understanding how you and your organization will develop sustainable and beneficial business strategies and achieve the organization’s goals. Understanding ESG reporting will prepare you for the potential impacts and risks and assist you in discussions throughout the organization about how to adapt, embrace, and report accordingly.

This program prepares employees who need theoretical knowledge and practical understanding and practice of ESG. This program covers various basic and high-level topics, providing an overview of the management framework for issues such as materiality and sustainability, investment decision models, and influencers are now discussing the impacts of actual topics on business, such as emissions targets, recycling,  impairment caused by climate change and its consequences, and social issues in the supply chain and health.
