Join us for our October IIA Luncheon: Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG)


The Seattle IIA is excited to have you join us on October 21, 2021 for the following presentation by Bob Hirth!

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance, reporting and assurance has gained center stage around the world as organizations seek to better understand the needs and concerns of a variety of stakeholders, improve their own performance and better communicate their ability to create long term sustainable value. Internal audit can play a valuable role in providing expanded ERM activity, objective assurance and consulting as their organizations, start, evolve and continuously improve their ESG activities. Throughout the session, participants will:

  • Learn about the latest drivers and application of ESG activity that enhance organizational value and sustainability for key internal and external stakeholders
  • Gain insight into the most current ESG reporting techniques and leading practices as well as reporting frameworks used by leading organizations globally
  • See how internal audit can add substantial value to ESG activities and reporting though expanded ERM, objective assurance and consulting activities
  • Understand the key points and implications of the IIA’s comment letter on the IFRS ESG consultation paper and recent SEC announcements on ESG

Our presenter will be Bob Hirth, Senior Managing Director at Protiviti and co-vice chair of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). SASB is rapidly becoming the investor preferred ESG reporting framework and has been specifically suggested by major institutional investors. Bob served as COSO Chair from June 2013 until February 2018 and he is a former two-term Standing Advisory Group (SAG) member of the PCAOB.
