The June issue of Internal Auditor magazine explores, in depth, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues — from ESG’s impact on assurance and risk management to internal audit’s role as a steward for the relevance and reliability of ESG data. An interview with Jeffrey Hales of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) complements an article on the five things you need to know about ESG.
“Is ESG the New Sarbanes-Oxley?” delves into ESG as a “megatrend” for the future of business, encompassing diversity and inclusion, climate change, organizational leadership, and shareholder rights. Other features look at determining internal audit’s ROI and remote work for audit teams. In addition, incoming IIA North American Board Chair Laura Soileau shares her theme, “The Next Generation of Internal Auditors,” and discusses her leadership priorities for the next year.
The June edition’s various departments examine well-written audit reports, along with the aftermath of SolarWinds, financial reporting during the pandemic, and the increase in special purpose acquisition corporations. Readers will gain insight into a 10-year diesel fuel theft, excuses for mediocrity, third-party tech threats, and emotional intelligence.
