Down to Earth: Bridge the Gap Between Aspiration & Vision for ESG

13th January 2022 | 4:00pm - 5:30pm GMT
How can you translate your vision for ESG into a tangible strategy?

A Meet the Boss virtual roundtable in partnership with VMware

It’s little surprise that ESG has risen to the top of business leaders’ minds for 2021 and beyond. Following a year defined by crises in public health, social inequity, and the global economy, it increasingly underpins businesses’ reputations. VMware’s Digital Frontiers research shows that it’s on the mind of consumers, while investors today increasingly consider ESG measurements and ratings when making decisions, recognising the impact it can have on company performance and growth opportunity.

However, despite its critical importance, there is a need for clarity. Questions arise as organisations look to translate their vision for ESG into tangible strategy. Furthermore, external discussions on, and coverage of, the topic are often quite abstract.

So, there is an information gulf facing leadership teams, between “what you ‘should’ do”, “what you actually need to prioritise and why,” and “how you can do what’s most important”.

Join VMware and a panel of likeminded executives as we discuss ways to help bridge the gap between aspiration and vision for ESG and the reality of making organizational change. We will also pose and answer the big questions that executives have relating to ESG and associated strategies.

Discussion Topics

Where are you on your ESG journey?
Is it possible to power an office of over 500 employees with renewable energy?
What steps can you take to build a more diverse workforce?
