Delivering long-term performance on ESG requires more than good data collection and reporting. Driving broader positive social and environmental impact starts with integrating the purpose and values that underly good ESG across the entire organisation. This session will introduce the key ‘softer’ characteristics commonly amongst organisations that are leaders in ESG, specifically exploring required elements of resourcing, governance structures and culture.
The transition to a sustainable economy is both urgent and critical to our future economic success – as well as to our social and environmental wellbeing. The world needs those with effective leadership skills, knowledge and competence to lead this transition and those that can emit leadership styles that engender a sense of shared responsibility towards building a sustainable future.
