Overview

ESG Disclosure Course Overview

As corporate ESG performance is rapidly becoming a key indicator of a company's ability to compete, it is crucial to understand the perspective around and have the ability to work with ESG issues to inform financial decision-making.

This course will explain the critical concepts behind ESG disclosure and why it's essential, along with the properties of high-quality disclosures. 

We will look at examples of both investor-facing and public-facing reporting frameworks before discussing emerging trends in ESG Reporting. Next, we will move on to quantitative & qualitative disclosures to better understand the use cases, objectives, and impacts of different disclosure methods. 

After, we'll explore how to prepare and position ESG disclosure to meet different expectations and requirements from investors, policymakers, customers, and rating agencies, while also discussing best practices. 

Then, we'll work through how to interpret ESG disclosure and analyze disclosure quality to understand how stakeholders evaluate ESG risk and opportunity. Finally, we'll put everything we've learned into practice in a case study where we will compare two companies' ESG disclosures using real, publicly available information.
