Sustainability Governance: Importance of Stakeholder Engagement in Sustainability Reporting

The seminar focuses on ESG (environmental, social, and governance) oversight and reporting, and provides guidance for boards to effectively oversee and evaluate management efforts related to ESG issues. It will address the communication of ESG progress to stakeholders and discuss the importance of integrated reporting; providing a holistic view of a company’s value creation over time, including its financial, environmental, social, and governance performance. Throughout the seminar, Dr. King advises on public commitments to wider stakeholders and shareholders, and how boards can effectively engage with these groups, while monitoring progress toward meeting commitments. The seminar also highlights board composition, the skills and expertise required for effective board oversight, and how boards can ensure they have the right mix of skills and experience to address ESG and other governance issues.
