Sustainability and ESG are no longer the sole responsibility of a company’s sustainability officer or other corporate executives. With the idea being mainstreamed, today, investors expect that the board must deeply engage with the issue. It is a research proved fact that companies with robust board oversight tend to do a better job managing ESG risks. Assigning ESG to a board committee signals publicly that ESG is important to the company. Directors can enable more effective engagement with investors by fostering more proactive identification, measurement, and disclosure of ESG risks that provide insight into how the organization is integrating sustainability and changing stakeholder expectations into its risk and strategy practice.
