VNU / EASP Webinar 09/2020

21. September 2020 in ZOOM-Meeting, Beginn: 16:30 Uhr

Digital Stakeholder Engagement:
How to engage stakeholders in times of restricted movement?

The Covid-19 crisis impacts the whole society and challenges businesses. But it is also an opportunity. Companies were able to accelerate their digitalization strategy within days. For sustainability professionals this is also an opportunity to rethink their stakeholder engagement process as traditional approaches with workshops, conferences and face-to-face meetings are restricted.
The webinar will be held in English and is free of charge.

During this webinar, we will explore how companies can leverage the digital solutions to engage with stakeholders, conduct materiality assessments and monitor emerging ESG issues.

We will address the following issues:
What are the opportunities of digital stakeholder engagement?
How can you conduct a digital materiality assessment?
What digital channels are available?
