Social and environmental issues in the boardroom
It has been predicted that the sustainability movement will transform organizations and the economy to a degree matched only by the advent of mass production, the technology revolution and globalization. Recent high profile incidents such as the BP oil spill have highlighted the importance of this issue. Are the risks, rewards and costs associated with sustainability fully understood and addressed in your organization’s strategy and operations? Has your board taken the time to consider whether sustainability objectives have been built into the business plan and reporting? Moreover, have they been clearly communicated to your shareholders? Do you understand the impact current regulations pertaining to sustainability have on your organization as well as the regulatory requirements that can be expected in the future? This session examines the implications of these and other emerging issues for boards of directors.
In this session you will hear from seasoned corporate directors, company executives and other professionals who will share their insights on current corporate governance issues.
