Sustainability and the board

What do directors need to know in 2018?

The World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report, released in January 2018, notes that environmental concerns top the global risk list again. All five risks in the environmental category are ranked higher than average in terms of both likelihood and impact over a 10-year horizon. A survey conducted by Deloitte and Forbes in 2017 indicates that sustainability has emerged as the top risk for senior leaders.

According to the 2017 Edelman Trust Barometer4, 66 percent of investors say they must trust a company’s board of directors before making or recommending an investment. Transparency into the board’s consideration and management of ESG impacts can help promote that trust.
