Governance in a glass box

‘Those that treat supply chain sustainability as an incremental compliance exercise will fail to take a stand and therefore find themselves with a shrinking pool of potential customers and investors as more people filter out brands that lack a clear story of positive impact.’

How can non-execs be more effective?

‘We all have a natural way of talking and thinking, developed over many years, but to be effective, non-execs have to make an effort to conserve their contribution for when it really matters. It is not their place to demonstrate that they have a technical understanding of the issues being debated; they wouldn’t be there if they didn’t. It is their place to demonstrate the behavioural skills needed to get the board to be more effective.’
