ESG’s impact on your communications

No matter if your business’s sustainability ambitions are high or low, the way you talk to the market is changing, and quickly. New reporting laws, greenwashing risks, and stakeholders all force communicators to change how they operate, taking both a broader and more forensic approach to messages. This session will equip you with the principles to master this environment.
