Shasat Rolls Out ESG Masterclass, Setting New Benchmarks in Sustainability Reporting Training

Thursday, October 5th, 2023

In today’s dynamic corporate landscape, the integration of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations into professional decision-making has emerged as a critical imperative. Shasat has recently unveiled a ground-breaking program designed to meet this growing need. The ESG Masterclass, a two-day intensive course, is set to empower professionals with the knowledge and expertise required to excel in this transformative realm.

The corporate world is on the brink of a profound shift. The rise of socially responsible investing has led to a staggering increase in the allocation of assets, surpassing USD 23 trillion globally, consciously factoring in ESG influences.  Numerous institutions and standards, including WBCSD, GRI, IIRC, SASB, TCFD, ISSB, ESRS, and the draft from SEC, have established diverse disclosure requirements. With the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) recently drawing inspiration from TCFD’s disclosure mandates and subsequently introducing the ground-breaking IFRS Sustainability Disclosure Standards – IFRS S1 and IFRS S2, set to be effective from January 1, 2024, the landscape of global sustainability reporting has undergone a significant transformation. This two-day ESG Masterclass program offered by Shasat is designed to navigate these multifaceted disclosure requirements. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of the various requirements and discern the key differences among them, ensuring they’re equipped to address and adhere to these evolving standards.

The ESG Masterclass program, offered by Shasat, has been meticulously crafted to cater to professionals seeking to navigate and influence this evolving landscape effectively. Its comprehensive curriculum spans a wide range of essential ESG topics, including climate change, social responsibility, human rights, corporate governance, and sustainable investing. Recognizing the paramount importance of the new IFRS sustainability standards, the program’s expert instructors guide participants through real-world case studies and hands-on exercises, equipping them with the skills and insights necessary to embrace ESG best practices and leverage the ‘climate first’ transition approach for their inaugural year of reporting under these standards.
