This course helped me differentiate the concepts of ESG, CSR and sustainability, and to realize that adopting a proactive approach towards ESG leads to cost efficiencies and long term returns of a company and facilitates the company to enhance brand reputation through paving a way for the public to assess its opportunities and risks.

It was a pleasant learning journey in which I acquired better understanding of ESG reporting frameworks (such as Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), SASB - Sustainability Accounting Standards Board and CPD) and ESG in Corporate Context with the aid of case studies from Hong Kong and other regions.
