Advancing Together:
June / July 2023

Well into 2023, and less than a year since ChatGPT redefined artificial intelligence standards everywhere, the debate around understanding how technology continues to transform the world we experience shows no signs of abating. A multitude of questions continue to unpack the role that industry should play, in addition to how the government, organisations, and leaders can support, promote, and facilitate the safe, ethical, and responsible use of new technologies such as AI.

In this edition, however, we have chosen to feature a social impact newsroom dedicated to challenging the underrepresentation of young women in news and media worldwide.

In this edition we explore the recent surge in Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) focus in the corporate responsibility arena, as stakeholders including employees, customers, shareholders, third party suppliers and the community as a whole place growing expectations on companies to be ever more transparent about their operations that go beyond climate change and conservation of the environment.

Not entirely new as a concept, ESG embraces all that is not typically captured in mandates for financial or commercial reporting, but has picked up pace dramatically, globally, and locally. This new focus is causing quite a stir in Australia, as business and different industries try to anticipate regulation likely to emerge as priority for Governments everywhere.

In this addition we highlight articles from our contributors:

  • The future of ESG reporting and compliance
  • Drivers of ESG compliance
  • Unpacking food waste solutions
  • Four key factors impacting your ESG score
  • ESG, political and environmental hostage
  • Legal talk, human rights and technology
  • Why ESG risk should be top of your due diligence agenda
