Better Boards

Elevating ESG matters at the boardroom

Location: Athens Date: May 27, 2021 | 5:00 pm EEST


Companies are facing increasing pressure from inves­tors, customers, regulators to address and manage ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) in a stronger way. As communities, economies, firms, and in some cases family and friends, struggle with the Covid pandemic, many companies have had to shift priorities. At the same time society is becoming more awake to systemic race and gender issues that have hindered equal opportunity. And the juggernaut coming in our direction is the issue of climate change - with many countries, cities and compa­nies making "net zero" pledges and commitments to the Paris Agreement and regulatory action also driving the need to act to respond to climate challenges. And yet in the midst of all these challenges there is opportunity for companies who are able to focus and integrate ESG into their strategy and operations, and be able to communi­cate this with conviction.

Our partner Jennifer Tsim will introduce the topic during this Better Boards session, organized in Athens (Greece) with the support of the British Hellenic Chamber of Commerce, in association with the Financial Times Board Director Programme, and under the auspices of Leschi Epicheirimatikotitas.
