Keep your board and executives up to date on the evolving ESG landscape
Companies are increasingly facing opportunities and threats from emerging environmental, social and governance matters. As a board member it is critical to stay informed and up to date to ensure effective oversight over strategy and risk as well as to manage the company’s ability to meet rapidly evolving investor, market and regulatory expectations.
While directors’ fundamental duties have not changed, boards are now expected to oversee a company’s key ESG risks and opportunities as well as the overall strategy to measure, integrate and manage these matters. These matters have taken a firm hold across companies of all sizes, all industries and in all markets, meaning boards must align ESG with the broader business strategy and cannot afford to be complacent.
With ever increasing scrutiny on directors combined with the momentum that ESG will carry into the coming year, it’s crucial to stay abreast of the changing ESG landscape and make sure your board is engaged, educated and informed.
