ASSESSING AND MANAGING ESG STRATEGY AT BOARD LEVEL

Sustainability is now central to corporate competitiveness and a company’s continued ability to operate. Consistent with their fiduciary duties the company directors must provide their investors with greater transparency into how the company is responding to a broader range of environmental and social trends, against a backdrop of higher stakeholder expectations.

Environmental, Social, and Governance (‘ESG’) concerns, are increasingly positioned at the top of board agendas and pose both strategic and risk management challenges, especially at the most progressive companies.

  • the ability to integrate ESG risks into the broader Enterprise Risk Management practices and procedures;
