ENGAGE 2024: The Sustainability Reporting and Communications Sessions

Hosted during edie’s third annual Engagement Week, this online event offers up an afternoon of live, interactive webinar presentations and discussions – all dedicated to helping sustainability, ESG and communications professionals understand the everchanging sustainability reporting landscape and drive stakeholder engagement to accelerate climate action.

The way sustainability and net-zero progress is reported and communicated has radically changed. Changing regulation and standardisation is making for an increasingly complex non-financial reporting landscape. Meanwhile, investors, customers and society are applying increasing pressure on businesses to present sustainability data in coherent, engaging formats which avoid greenwashing.

edie’s ENGAGE 2024 online event effectively combines three webinars into a single afternoon, with each session taking a particular format. The first will take the form of an audience-led Q&A; the second will be a series of quick-fire case studies; and the third will take a ‘masterclass’ format.

Registrants will get access to all three webinar sessions on the day. Full details of the three Sustainability Reporting and Communications Sessions are as follows:


1) The Disclosure digest Q&A: Shaping your disclosure strategy in 2024


  • Mandatory climate disclosure: Are you prepared?

2) The anti-greenwash Hour: Best-practice case studies to corporate engagement


Our second session offers up a series of never-before-seen, quick-fire case studies, hearing from some of the organisations that are unleashing the power of purpose to engage key stakeholders, spark behaviour change and drive meaningful change – all while avoiding greenwash and making their claims stand out.

Discussion points:
