As ESG takes a more prominent position in our society, the impact on organizations and the accompanying pressure for positive ESG results is increasing. This increase in pressure can lead organizations to “stretch the truth” or outright misrepresent their organization’s performance related to ESG metrics.

Most auditors are familiar with the fraud triangle, but many haven’t considered how it applies to greenwashing and how greenwashing risks could be factored into their anti-fraud program.

Join our panelists as they unpack common “greenwashing” (misleading or erroneous ESG reporting) practices, the pressures that influence organizations to engage in those practices, actions internal auditors can take to assess these risks for their organizations, and what steps management can take to mitigate those risks.

DATE: December 12, 2023
TIME: 2:00 PM-3:00 PM ET

Registration closes at 11:59 PM ET on December 11, 2023.
