 With the emergence of ESG investing in recent years, PESA has taken the lead in providing the OFS sector and cross-industry partners with the tools needed to adapt and thrive. This year, PESA also established the ESG Center of Excellence, an online clearinghouse of information and resources. The certification program provided an opportunity for in-depth study of best practices and how to develop an ESG strategy for individual companies. 

PESA has partnered with Envision, a global leader in corporate advising and coaching, to refine and enhance the curriculum for the second cohort of the ESG Certification Program, which will be held in 2021. The 2021 program will include four half-day sessions, an assessment tool, one-on-one executive coaching, accountability partners, quarterly networking sessions, leadership development opportunities, and facilitated cross-company discussion. The program is designed to educate participants on ESG reporting requirements, including practical guidelines on why, how and what to report. Participants will also learn how to develop a reporting strategy and framework to provide ESG investors with the information they need.
