Season 1, Episode 4: Elizabeth Scorer, Head of IR at Foresight Group
A New Approach to ESG reporting
Foresight Group has won the IR Society award for Communication in Sustainability and describes some of the reasons in the video.
Foresight as a company is a sustainably led investment manager, so this is part of the company culture. Even so, they have taken new actions this last year, such as appointing a new head of sustainability, integrating it further with the marketing department to communicate the program better, and assigning an ESG Leader on the board.
Elizabeth Scorer, Director and head of IR, also speaks about choosing the right frameworks to deliver significant impact without using too many resources. As for the next steps, many innovations are expected for 2023, including installing a data management platform. Taking a proactively initiative to ask shareholders what they want to hear is also on the plans, along with internal KPIs.
Elizabeth ends the video with great tips for companies new to reporting: Plan early, have data, and secure the support of the leadership.
