Rising to the ESG Challenge: Routes Towards Effective Governance: free webinar, September 7

A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in corporate climate governance: the Rising to the ESG Challenge: Routes Towards Effective Governance free webinar on September 7.

Boards Impact Forum , together with INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre and BCG, are delighted to host a Webinar and Digital Dialogue on Wednesday September 7, 9-10.30 AM CET to share the latest findings of a global research study conducted by INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre and BCG, followed by a panel discussion with highly experienced Board Members.

The webinar is run also in cooperation with several Climate Governance Initiative Chapters including Chapter Zero UK, Climate Governance Initiative in Singapore and Malaysia.

The research examines how boards are engaging with ESG matters today, the different board structures and complementary practices to firmly embed ESG and sustainability in their oversight.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues are taking the main stage in global businesses today. More than ever, boards of directors are expected to play a pivotal role in stewarding their ESG agenda to drive positive impact through the organisations they oversee. The journey can be materialised through many practicable routes albeit no one-size-fits-all solution. To effectively confront ESG challenges, boards need to consider the sustainability of their governance structure to undergird implementation of long-term action plans that are aligned strategically across the organisation.

Join us for an interactive exchange, as we showcase the research highlights presented by Ron Soonieus, Director in Residence with ICGC and Senior Advisor with BCG followed by a stimulating panel discussion with distinguished guest panellists:

Johan Raslan, Independent Director, Sime Darby Property Berhad and Board Member of Institute of Corporate Directors Malaysia and Climate Governance Initiative Malaysia;

Lise Kingo, Non-Executive Director at Sanofi, Covestro and Aker Horizons, former Executive Director of Global Compact and Member of Boards Impact Forums Strategic Advisory Board;

Noora Al Marzooqi, Vice President, Group Strategic Investments of ADNOC, Board Member of ADNOC LNG, ADNOC City Gas Company, Abu Dhabi Energy Real State Company LLC, and Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan Sustainability Initiatives;

Susan Hooper, Chair of Tangle Teezer and Inter.Earth and Board Member of Moonpig plc, EUROWAG plc, Uber UK and Founding Director of Chapter Zero UK.

They will share insights into the leading board structures to support ESG agenda which will lead to a fireside chat with Nicolas Naudin, Non-Executive Director Board, Human Cell Design and Member of the IFA/ESG steering Committee, Chair of the Non-Financial Reporting Working Group and Member of the EU Confederation of Directors’ Association (ecoDa) Task Force on ESG who will share perspective on the regulatory landscape, arbitrary role of the board and the imperative of consistency in integrating ESG into the heart of strategy and applied across the different dimensions of business from product/service design to communication, remuneration, capital allocation and investment decisions.
