Directors are uniquely positioned to ensure sustainability is fully embedded into business strategies and practices in a way that will support the long-term profitability and viability of the company.
The Global Compact Board Programme is the first of its kind to align and support Boards of Directors to effectively oversee and drive a strategic approach to corporate sustainability, and to respond to the interests of all key stakeholders while protecting and creating financial value.
The Board Programme is tailored to the needs of the individual company and delivered in-house by a roster of international experts. Through facilitated strategic discussions on pressing sustainability issues, the Board Programme helps Boards to:
- Align on the strategic imperative and materiality of corporate sustainability as critical for the company’s long-term viability
- Realize the integral role that Board members can and should play in overseeing, incentivizing and driving corporate sustainability, by embedding it into Board duties, composition and structure
- Take action to demonstrate leadership on Board adoption and oversight of corporate sustainability with investors, employees, customers and other stakeholders
