Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Requirements and Impact on Boards

January 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Boards Impact Forum Webinar on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Requirements and Impact on Boards

Sustainability and ESG is growing in importance and urgency for most companies. Boards needs to step up and help manage both risk and new growth opportunities. Investors, lenders, regulators, customers, business partners and employees are asking questions and requesting actions from the boards.

In this Webinar we will discuss with experienced chairs and NEDs, as well as top board and ESG advisors on how trends and regulations are shifting, as well as the board’s role and what they need to know.

  • What are stakeholders’ ESG expectations and how are they impacting boards?
  • How are boards guiding & following their companies’ sustainability transitions?
  • How are the ESG trends and regulations impacting financial institutions and corporates? What will the EU taxonomy mean, and how is disclosure and reporting changing?
  • How are boards making sense of the increasing alphabet soup?
  • How are financial institutions & investors evaluating a company’s ESG situation?
