ESG roundtable program

ESG roundtable program

This program item is a new feature this year which the organizers have added to address new requirements in the area of ESG. Non-financial reporting concerns all large companies, and, in the future, it will apply to some small and medium-sized ones as well. However, the “mentality” of non-financial reporting pervades the supply-customer chains. The workshop will take the form of a roundtable around which ESG experts will sit.

The workshop will be useful both for company management and for employees who directly deal with sustainability reporting or solve customer requirements for the sustainability of their suppliers. The main topic of the workshop will be the double materiality assessment, which is the basis for successful sustainability reporting according to the new CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) and ESRS (European Sustainability Reporting Standards), in the context of the supply chain.

As part of the discussion, we will discuss, among other things, how to get started with ESG reporting; for what exactly is the double materiality assessment; where the double materiality assessment reach; what information customers will typically require from their suppliers; what should be the output of the assessment; and more. We seek active sharing of experiences by the participants, and therefore we will be happy if you prepare your observations and specific questions for the discussion. Don’t miss this opportunity to take away as much advice as possible from both an expert in the field and your colleagues during the workshop.

People who are already engaged in sustainability reporting at logistics and transport companies, or are just getting prepared, are invited to participate in the workshop. David Janků, a reporting consultant at Frank Bold Advisory, will lead you through the workshop and discussion in the role of moderator. As part of his regular consulting activities, he deals with the entire breadth of sustainability reporting, including the double materiality assessment, calculating the carbon footprint, and creating sustainability reports.

During the workshop, you will hear, among others, these short presentations, which will serve as a springboard for discussions in which you can actively participate:

  • Gabriela Povýšilová, ESG manager at CTP, will talk about which aspects of the development of sustainable projects are the most important for this developer – materials, transport, etc. – and how they deal with ESG reporting at the local and European level.
  • Ondřej Veselovský, ESG leader CZ & SK at CRIF – Czech Credit Bureau, will talk about the availability of ESG data and the tools that can be used to collect and share key ESG data.
  • Kateřina Špániková, head of ESG & support products at Raiffeisenbank, will explain what is and is not sustainable from the bank’s point of view, how the bank recognizes it and how the company can profit from it.
