In partnership with Women Get On Board, we are pleased to present “ESG and the role of the board” on Thursday, October 29.

Driving sustainable business practices in companies requires oversight, insight & foresight from the board of directors. Today there is an imperative that sustainability be added to the board's agenda as part of the board's critical role to consider Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risks and opportunities.

The speakers for this session will focus on the following key areas in ESG:

  • Environmental: climate change, sustainability report, community/environment, renewable energy and waste avoidance/diversion;
  • Social: internal human-capital management, board diversity, external stakeholders, human rights issues in a business and its supply chains and the social license to operate; and
  • Governance: what processes does the board need to put in place to ensure board accountability on sustainable business practices?
