Embracing the “E” in ESGBy The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland
Over recent months, several firms have committed to new climate initiatives, indicating how seriously they take environmental and social governance or ESG.
Governance professionals have a significant role to play in supporting their boards with assessing climate-related risks and opportunities, understanding the various sustainability metrics, disclosing them in their annual reports and maintaining their board’s focus on the environment.
So how is your board driving sustainability and setting the tone from the top? What corporate strategies are you currently implementing to support a new and sustainable economy? How can you improve your ESG rating with investors? And how can governance professionals steer their boards towards excellence on sustainability and environmental issues?
Join our panel as they discuss how companies have been responding to environmental challenges, whether current strategies are fit for purpose, and how excelling in this most complex of areas can boost corporate reputation and brand value.
