About this event

Corporate Social Responsibility, sustainability, ESG… are these all the same, or not? Why does ESG matter, how is it measured, and what does it mean for my company?   This space is moving incredibly fast and still evolving, but also a critical part of board governance and capital markets for the future. There’s an alphabet soup of organizations tracking ESG performance, and you could spend all your time tracking them down. So how do you know where to focus and why? What’s the role of a board member, and how can you help the management team focus on the right stuff?   Join us to discuss these questions, share insights, and head into Earth Day with some tools for navigating this important space.
