ESG Acceleration Webinar: CSA Training for ESG Teams

Ensuring a strategic approach towards DJSI inclusion
Approaching S&P Global's Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA) in the smartest way possible is crucial to strengthen your organization's performance and chances for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI). In this webinar, we will discuss how to set up your ESG team to prepare well for your CSA 2023 participation. By sharing insights on how to drive your sustainability program, we will equip ESG teams and more specifically topic owners, and project managers with practical tips to strengthen your organisation's approach to the CSA.

Sustainability is a key element of ABN AMRO’s strategy. To accelerate the sustainability shift, the company focuses on three themes: climate change, circular economy, and social impact. Non-financial reporting and participation in ESG benchmarks is part of communicating the bank's approach and results. Guest speaker Catalina Hemmink, Sustainability Reporting Specialist at ABN AMRO, will be sharing how she manages the CSA process within the company and will give her practical takeaways for ESG project managers and topic owners.

Finch & Beak's Nikkie Vinke, CSA and ESG benchmarking expert, will be sharing more on how to practically tackle the CSA and leverage the learnings to drive your sustainability program. With ten years of international hands-on ESG benchmarking experience and having worked with multiple industry leaders, Nikkie is very well acquainted with the CSA and will break provide some lessons on how to best prepare for 2023.
