Engaging boards with climate change

‘The consensus around our table was that non-execs have several very important roles to play in this, by: challenging their boards to develop appropriately ambitious CO2 reduction plans; scrutinising the delivery of those plans; using their networks to transfer good practice from one board to another; and communicating with the investor community.’ David Archer and Alex Cameron

Sustainability

‘Overall, the business case for addressing sustainability is compelling – and companies can no longer afford to avoid embedding sustainability goals into their strategic thinking. ESG concerns have reached the boardrooms and are topping agendas. We are seeing this play out across all markets as businesses respond to increasing expectations among customers, shareholders, and civil society.’ Robert King
