A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in ESG: The Reshaping Governance in a Sustainability Era – ESG Board Pulse 2023 free webinar on September 7.
What is the state of ESG on Boards? What is the progress and key trends, capabilities and new board practices emerging?
The call for sustainability and climate action to be integrated into corporate strategy across the full spectrum of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues is reshaping economies, companies and their governance.
Increasingly, sustainability has become part of board directors’ responsibility and gaining priority on board’s agenda as its importance continues to permeate across the fabric of business and society.
Yet, the question endures on whether boards are ready to address the sustainability challenge amidst relentless waves of disruptions such as generative AI, new trade risks, geopolitical uncertainty, regulatory changes, and other issues arising on the boardroom table.
Organised by Boards Impact Forum, Climate Governance Initiative together with INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre, the Webinar and Digital Dialogue on September 7 at 12-13.30 CET, will dive into the latest findings of the joint research study developed collaboratively by INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre, BCG and Heidrick & Struggles, with respondants also from Boards Impact Forum and Climate Governance Initiative, to gain insights on how sustainability is reshaping governance and the work of board directors starting from the selection and evaluation of board directors, adopting long-term strategy and mindset, and modelling strong leadership.
The findings reveal that though significant progress has been made on boardroom awareness and understanding of the sustainability agenda, availability and a self-declared lack of expertise at the board level has resulted in a gap between intentions and prioritisation of the environmental, social and governance (ESG) agenda.
