ESG BOARD FORUM

Strategies to Deliver Sustainable Growth—and Win Stakeholder Support

Thursday, June 3

10:00 am - 3:30 pm ET

If your board still treats ESG as a package of check-the-box initiatives, it’s time to dig deeper and make it about strategy and risk.

Companies that demonstrate how environmental, social and governance impact their strategy, operations and long-term opportunities are best positioned to meet stakeholders’ expectations. Join your peers to evaluate your board’s ability to prioritize, benchmark and report on your organization’s unique ESG decisions.

For the average U.S. S&P 500 company today, 80% of company value lies in assets not showing up in the financial materiality of a balance sheet.

WHY ATTEND

Understand how the Biden Administration’s ESG roadmap will influence regulatory mandates and, in turn, business decisions.

Improve your communication efforts on climate risk to meet shareholders’ reporting expectations.

Establish incentive plans that balance nonfinancial goals with performance to drive your organization’s future success.

Strengthen your ability to benchmark progress and enhance accountability on “sustainable value” for stakeholders.

Identify key questions you should be asking your compliance and HR departments to properly oversee social issues.

Share best practices on board structure and processes to improve your oversight of critical ESG issues.
