Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues are of importance for businesses globally as the legal and regulatory landscape changes and ESG expectations of investors, customers, employees and other stakeholders grow. Now more than ever, investors are incorporating ESG criteria into their investment assessments and valuation decisions, and perceive companies with strong sustainability programs one of the indicators of sound and reliable performance going forward.

ESG and its reporting has come into its own as a discipline, with top companies now issuing BRSR reports. What’s the role of the board’s and executive team’s in ensuring that these activities are responsive to investor needs?

Many boards of directors are considering their approaches to environmental, societal and governance (ESG) topics and, more particularly, how ESG can contribute to the long-term success of their businesses. Such introspection is partly in reaction to demands from shareholders and other stakeholders.

Boards should consider taking responsibility for ESG, set up and follow an oversight protocol, influence behaviours through compensation, and report with caution.

To discuss about the current scenario in ESG, Institute of Directors, India will be holding a special 'Global Webinar' on Wednesday, 23rd February 2022 through the digital mode. The theme for the webinar will be ‘ESG Strategy for the Board: Turning Rhetoric into Reality in a VUCA World".
