Katrina and Conrad with the other panelists
Conrad served as the moderator while Katrina was a panelist for the topic on securing the corporate governance space. Katrina answered questions on the non-financial performance of companies.
“The investing public has become more concerned on the environmental impact of companies throughout their operations, including their supply/value chain. Unfortunately, with the rising clamor for sustainability and sustainable business practices comes the unscrupulous practice of greenwashing. This has triggered the need for third-party assurance for sustainability reporting,” Katrina said.
