November 12, 2021 /3BL Media/ - There are more than 300 potential ESG topics that could be material to a publicly listed company. To help companies understand which areas need more attention, Andrew Ciafardini, chief sustainability officer and head of global public policy from FIS, along with Jennifer Frasier, vice president of diversity and inclusion and Nathan Rozof, executive vice president, corporate finance and investor relations from FIS will join a panel discussion and share best practices.

Over the course of the session, speakers will address how companies can engage all functions of a company with the materiality process, understand the processes required to prioritize and focus on issues that are most relevant to shareholder engagement and learn how an ESG story can be condensed into easily digestible messages to be used during investor days and presentations.

We are delighted that the team from FIS, who recently won the IR Magazine award for best ESG reporting, will join us to share how they work together to deliver a top ESG program. Since its inception, the forum’s mission has always been to help different stakeholders at companies work together to respond to ESG expectations – and it’s brilliant that Andrew, Nate and Jennifer will be able to share real-life examples about how they achieve this!” – Steven Wade, head of event content, IR Magazine and Corporate Secretary.

The format, far removed from a traditional webinar, consists of panel discussions, live speaker Q&A, 1-to-1 networking, virtual roundtable discussions, fireside chats and more.

About Corporate Secretary

Corporate Secretary is a publication of IR Media Group, a business media company renowned for its magazines, websites, events and research.

Corporate Secretary is a digital and print platform, providing a forum where governance experts and service providers can share their experience, insights and best practice recommendations on a wide range of critical issues, from corruption, internal investigations, e-discovery and records management to succession planning, executive compensation, proxy actions and shareholder engagement.

Corporate Secretary was founded in 2002 to help corporate secretaries and other governance professionals develop a deeper understanding of their roles and become more effective in them at a time when publicly listed companies’ regulatory compliance requirements began to escalate amid a series of high-profile corporate accounting scandals.

Corporate Secretary is independently owned and today continues to serve a vital role in highlighting the achievements and expertise of a group of people who work outside the spotlight and are often isolated as the only individuals in their organizations focusing on these complex matters.
