In today's corporate boardrooms, the conversations have started focusing on risk and strategy however the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) matters still awaiting the spotlight. As it will start gaining the attention, the corporate boards will appreciate the concept in totality and will also understand the cross cutting implications of aspects pertaining to E, S and G individually. It is expected to enhance the understanding of the Board towards the framework of integrating ESG in corporate value chain and also to communicate the company's sustainability story to stakeholders. This includes knowing how ESG metrics are communicated on the company's website, disclosed in a separate sustainability report, or integrated in other statutory filing. Overseeing the quality of both the ESG program and disclosures may be an objective process performed by an independent third party following quality control and professional standards. At the board level, this oversight resides with the audit committee.
