Episode 3: We discuss ESG data, MI and the role and responsibility of the Audit Committee

The third episode in this series sees Jessica speaking to Chris Jones, an experienced NED and Audit Committee Chair and Steve Farrell, Partner, ESG Assurance Lead, Deloitte and discussing ESG data, MI and the role and the responsibility of the Audit Committee.

Key questions explored in this podcast:

  1. What do we mean when we say ESG data?
  2. What are the common challenges with ESG data?
  3. What has to change to reduce these challenges?

At the end of episode 2 we flagged that episode 3 would be on transition planning; however due to scheduling conflicts that episode will be recorded later in the year..
