The New York University Stern Center for Sustainable Business – Thursday, January 31, 2019

​The Stern CSB and its project partners sought to engage companies on the topic of integrating quarterly conference calls. The Stern CSB convened a workshop attended by sustainability, investor relations and communication professionals from participating companies and other companies with an interest in integrated quarterly calls. The aims of the workshop were to: 1) Help companies increase the inclusion of the financial impact of successful execution of long-term and ESG strategy, in quarterly earnings content; 2) Increase collaboration between Investor Relations, Finance and Sustainability teams in crafting strategic communications on long-term and ESG strategy and the impact that successful execution of ESG strategy has on corporate financial performance; 3) Create a coalition of companies working together to overcome barriers to the inclusion of information on corporate financial performance related to ESG in quarterly earnings content.
