Telling a Compelling & Compliant SATS Corporate Story
The shift towards socially responsible investing is broadening the role of an IRO. Besides financial metrics, the investment community requires an IRO today to articulate how dealing with the materiality of ESG issues creates value for the company and its stakeholders. Powerful storytelling can provide the transparency to build greater credibility and thought leadership that could impact the company's valuation. SATS shares how communicating in a compelling and compliant way can increase the value of the company.
