The Practical Applications of ESG for Public Boards Today
Boards of directors are faced with a tangled mess of ESG metrics and regulatory challenges. This session will focus on some of the questions that many board directors are grappling with when it comes to ESG dos and don'ts, including the following: What is the meaning of the SEC’s increasing attention to the validity of ESG metrics by issuers? What will be the repercussions of ESG-washing? Are companies going to honor their big promises and what are the consequences if they do not? What is a board member’s responsibility to steward long term ESG factors in order to protect profits? Join us to discuss the practical applications of ESG and how to distinguish the most relevant elements for a board director from all of the ESG noise.
