ERM at the Event

ERM is presenting at two sessions on Wednesday, February 27th:

The Global Landscape of Sustainable Business
11:25am - 11:45am

Sustainability is increasingly been seen as a differentiator for corporates and investors alike. To demonstrate this, we need robust, relevant, comparable and forward-looking measurement, management and reporting of data, as well as the assurance of such data.

Keryn James, ERM's CEO, will share a global perspective on what it will take for corporates and investors to succeed in this evolving context.

The Evolution of Social and Human Capital Management and Disclosure
4:15pm - 5:15pm

Corporate managers have long heralded people as their companies’ most important assets and research confirms the vital role of human capital in long-term value creation. In recognizing the importance and value of social and human capital – both to internal decision making and external disclosure – many corporations, their investors, stakeholders and business partners are seeking to establish standard, consistent and widely available measurement approaches.

Mike Wallace, Partner at BrownFlynn (an ERM Group company) will join other representatives of the Social and Human Capital Coalition and key stakeholders to delve into both the context and potential for these efforts as the world seeks to define these emerging and material issues.

ERM is also a Contributing Sponsor and will be exhibiting throughout the conference.
