Los Angeles/ Orange County Chapter Event

Los Angeles/ Orange County Chapter Event

We are excited to invite you to a discussion on a very relevant topic ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance). We have a panel of board members who are bringing their experience on ESG and how their boards are approaching all aspects of ESG. The panel will discuss what directors should consider when discussing ESG and implementing a strategy.

ESG covers environmental issues like climate change and resource scarcity, social issues like a company’s labor practices, talent management, product safety, and data security. It covers governance matters like board diversity, executive pay, and business ethics. But there is a divide among stakeholders on how to manage and communicate ESG and what the term even means.

ESG needs to start in the boardroom. ESG as a journey needs to be aligned to strategy, risk management, and compensation. ESG focused companies create long-term value. Bottom line: ESG is not going away.
