Inaugural conference of the Measuring Beyond initiative

February 14, 2024

HEC Montréal, in partnership with Oxford University's Saïd Business School, today launched the inaugural conference entitled ESG Revolution: Seizing Opportunities, Managing Risks and Taking Responsibility, as part of the Measuring Beyond initiative.

This event, which was presented by KPMG in Canada, along with the support of Executive Education HEC Montréal, marked the start of a series of three major annual conferences dedicated to this topic.


“The Measuring Beyond initiative is designed to equip organizations with the tools they need to manage responsibly. It aims to enrich the knowledge surrounding the measurement of corporate performance on ESG factors and to translate their integration into business and corporate social responsibility objectives.”

The main objective was to share best practices and emerging trends to equip organizations with the tools required for sustainable and responsible management.

By providing up-to-date knowledge and practical advice, this conference aimed to strengthen the ability of companies to meet sustainability challenges while seizing opportunities for responsible growth.

To do this, the event was structured around 4 main sessions, namely:


"The collaboration between HEC Montréal and various partners, including Oxford University's Saïd Business School and the International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB), demonstrates the commitment to developing best practices in responsible management, in Quebec and around the world. These partnerships stimulate the development of knowledge, with tangible benefits not only for companies, but for society as a whole.”
