Investors, regulators, and other key stakeholders are increasingly demanding corporate responsiveness on ESG issues. How these stakeholders expect corporations to respond to sustainability topics is however becoming ever more complex.  For instance, Dr. Klier asserts that data is improving, with technology making it abundant, accessible, and comparable. Modelling and climate science now mean companies can source highly accurate information on not only their absolute emissions, but also their relative contribution or prevention of global temperature increases. On the other hand, for investors, it becomes increasingly difficult to choose transparent, high-quality data. Dr. Klier will explain how companies and investors can respond to such fast-moving sustainability related regulatory and disclosure environments in an efficient and effective way.
