Exchanging, Learning and Networking on ESG Ratings & Rankings

Introducing the ESG Ratings Expert Network by SLR
Exchanging, Learning and Networking on ESG Ratings & Rankings
Publ. date 11 Dec 2022
In order to facilitate peer networking, grow competence on ESG ratings and accelerate your ESG scores, SLR Consulting is launching its ESG Ratings Expert Network: a virtual, global platform for ESG professionals. The network is open for senior managers actively working on their company’s ESG performance, with roles in for example sustainability/ESG, investor relations, finance, or corporate affairs/communication within stock-market listed companies or large family businesses.

Network members will have ample opportunity to learn, share and exchange with peers, while having access to the following privileges:

  • Live Expert Training:
    An annual, in-person networking event for ratings experts. Topics covered in presentations from leading ratings experts include the latest methodology changes and ESG developments. The upcoming Expert Training is planned for early March 2023 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, with guest speakers from leading rating agencies, deep-diving into the Corporate Sustainability Assessment.
  • Members-only webinars:
    Quarterly online webinars on new trends, market developments and regulations such as TNFD, supply chain engagement and ESRS.
  • ESG Roundtables:
    Twice a year, roundtables will be organised; online networking events with a maximum of 25 participants (members only, under Chatham house rule) around a specific topic such as effectively engaging boards.
  •  “State of ESG” report:
    Opportunity to contribute to the design of the research model of the ESG Market Survey and nominate best practices for the annual State of ESG report. Premium members will also have access to an online event to deep-dive into the results of SLR’s ESG survey and implications for companies, and those signing up before 1 June 2023 will be included in the next State of ESG report as a founding member of the ESG Ratings Expert Network.

The key benefits for members are solid peer networking, increasing competences on ESG ratings and acceleration of your ESG scores. The network is now open for registration: check out the ESG Ratings Expert Network brochure in the download section at the top of the page for further details on the members benefits and pricing.
