An Interactive Conversation About ESG

The 2022 Location Powers event will bring together leaders in government, industry, and third sectors to show how we can use geospatial technologies to meet the ethical and environmental challenges surrounding sustainability and Environmental, Social, and Governance reporting. In partnership with, and hosted by Ordnance Survey, this two day event will bring together key stakeholders critical to ESG.

As we begin to feel the effects of climate change on a personal basis, organisations now need to consider the impact of climate change on their bottom lines. Becoming sustainable means for most investors taking Environmental, Social and (Corporate) Governance (ESG) seriously, especially since companies can now be ranked against one another via independent organisations such Dun & Bradstreet [1]. For the first time, climate change and its impacts will be linked to the long-term viability of a corporation. The UK Government is leading the way, since becoming mandatory in April 2022 as part of the UK’s NetZero 2050 commitment [2].

Yet despite ESGs’ importance, collecting information for ESG reporting is still time-consuming and difficult to achieve. Getting clarity can be difficult; getting the correct data at the right time even more so. What can we do to facilitate better access to authoritative data? Finding location information can be a challenge with data, platforms, solutions, services, and marketplaces with blurred boundaries abound. Turning policy [3] into quality information can be a challenge.
