Format: In-Person

Presented by IIA Canada

About This Instructor-Led Certificate Program

Organizations are increasingly under pressure to understand and manage ESG risks, particularly as investors and regulators focus on organizations producing accurate and reliable reporting on sustainability efforts. That pressure is being reflected increasingly in executive performance as more organizations tie incentive compensation metrics to ESG goals. Additional risk areas associated with ESG are varied and can include reliance on third-party data, potential reputational damage from faulty reporting, and the real possibility that an organization’s explicit commitments to meet specific sustainability goals could grow into a material weakness. 

As ESG reporting becomes increasingly common world-wide, it should be treated with the same care as financial reporting. Organizations need to recognize that ESG reporting must be built on a strategically crafted system of internal controls and accurately reflect how an organization’s ESG efforts relate to each other, the organization’s finances, and value creation. This certificate program provides hands-on practical application of critical ESG metric identification and reporting. 

Participants who complete the course are eligible to sit for the certificate exam which is administered on The IIA’s LMS platform.
