How are companies defining and measuring whether the ESG programs are being implemented in a consistent manner versus the requirements governing those programs? Stakeholders, from investors to customers to employees, are demanding today’s companies take action on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues.  Companies are making commitments through goals and targets and establishing programs to enable those goals to be met. Much like its EHS counterpart, ESG program audits can also play a critical role in the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle of continual improvement. An effective audit program with a clearly defined purpose and framework provides a solid foundation for ensuring ESG goals and targets are met.

In this webinar, we will discuss auditing broadly and highlight the essentials to consider when executing individual audits as well as establishing and implementing audit programs. From a program perspective, we will discuss best practices in audit frequency, quality assurance, verification, and reporting to senior management. We will also cover key considerations for individual audits, including audit criteria, scope, protocol, finding definitions, root cause analysis, corrective/preventive actions, and reporting. Finally, we will conclude with a brief overview of the importance of periodic audit program reviews in order to ensure continued efficiency and effectiveness of the audit program and verification of its intended purpose and design. 

A certificate of attendance will be available for all attendees and participants will be able to download the certificate at the conclusion of the presentation. The document will also be available in your follow-up email post-live event.
