ESG & the CIO: Introduction
Part one focuses on introducing ESG and what it can mean for your organization and your information system.
In part two, Radha Curpen details the pivotal role that CIOs play in developing ESG mandates and an organization's ESG journey over short- and long-term timelines. She provides an overview of trending ESG issues in Canada and a look into how to tackle the continuous process of responding to ESG integrations and establishing frameworks.
Evolving Regulation of Information in Canada
Information systems can unexpectedly evolve or begin to develop bias. As a CIO and organization, continuous vigilance is required while managing information systems to ensure that data sets are not inadvertently bringing a bias into the system. Watch Stephen's module for insight on the logistics of the regulation of information in Canada and the risk of inherent bias that arises within the information system itself.
Evolving Reporting Requirements
With growing focus on ESG, there's been an abundance of organizations proposing various standards of practice and disclosure. While ESG factors are becoming central to many investing and lending activities, there has been a lack of adoption of consistent standards and reporting. Watch Denise's module for a look into what challenges companies will face as they navigate the actively evolving ESG reporting requirements and decide which frameworks and standards to adopt and utilize.
Information Systems, Data Sets and Bias
CIOs are at the centre of change in ESG. They are balancing their organization's ESG objectives and aspirations with changes in Canadian reporting requirements, laws and information systems. Watch as Stephen Burns provides an overview of Bennett Jones' ESG & CIO series—and how it will provide the context and practical information CIOs need as organizations move ahead on their ESG journeys.
