In today’s complex and uncertain world, focusing on near-term shareholder value alone is no longer enough to ensure long-term business success. Sustained value creation requires companies to manage business performance to ensure that sustainability matters that affect business value are addressed.
We’re delighted to assist the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (“WBCSD“) with the development of ‘Modernizing Governance: ESG challenges and recommendations for corporate directors‘ report, which aims to better understand the current state of play and potential solutions by:
- examining the current governance approach relating to sustainability in 12 jurisdictions; and
- interviewing board members representing more than 40 companies to understand their perspectives on sustainability governance
