IQ-EQ Masterclass: How to mitigate ESG reputational risk

ESG Compass

Earlier this month, we were pleased to host the second episode of IQ-EQ's new ESG virtual masterclass series for asset managers, corporates and family offices. Each episode in this series will feature different industry experts covering a range of topics relating to ESG strategy, risk management, reporting and monitoring.

The second masterclass, held on 17 February 2021, was led by Lev Yuriditsky, Head of Intelligence at Sqope, a leading provider of advanced due diligence reports that empower professionals to evaluate risk and make decisions. Lev has 10 years of experience in the intelligence field, building and managing global research teams in the areas of geopolitics and terror monitoring. Prior to joining Sqope, Lev worked for the United Nations as a Civil-Military Coordinator. He has covered all corners of the globe during his career and has particular expertise in the EMEA region.

During our masterclass session, Lev defined reputational risk and explained how reputation and perception are factors that influence all aspects of ESG. He also explained what to look for in terms of environmental, social and governance reputation and how to interpret findings.

We're now pleased to share a full recording of this masterclass, which includes a brief introduction from IQ-EQ's Alex Stickler. Click below to watch:
