Sustainability Workshop 2019
Theme: Harnessing Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Sustainability Implementation and Reporting
– Towards NSE’s Sustainability Disclosure Compliance
Date: Saturday, 23rd
Venue: Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos – Nigeria
The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has recently introduced the sustainability disclosure
guidelines for listed companies as a way of encouraging all Issuers to consider and adopt the
practice of sustainability reporting. These guidelines primarily provide the value proposition for
sustainability in the Nigerian context and have been developed while recognizing that Issuers
may be at varying levels of understanding the requirements for the disclosure of sustainability
information relating to Ecology, Social and Governance (ESG) issues.
On the other hand, Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a significant role in the world today. Its impact
has been transformational, and it has been disrupting society and industry alike. Currently, the
global community is working to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which
include ending extreme poverty, decent work and economic growth, water and sanitation,
affordable clean energy and providing quality education.
The SDGs form a universally agreed blueprint and have galvanized unprecedented efforts to meet the needs of the world’s poorest.
It is not a coincidence that regarding sustainable development the business sphere also comes
up, particularly the responsibility of large companies.
