Governance Advocacy


Engaging boards towards governance for good

Corporate boards have a vital role to play in advancing societal progress amid global shifts and disruptions. Hence, the INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre is committed to promoting governance practices that contribute to sustainable development that benefits both business and society. Through our research, programmes, events and strategic partnerships, we create opportunities to engage board directors and their stakeholders with the aim to translate awareness to action.

Business and Society


By creating platforms for discussions and debates, developing new research and development programmes for directors, ICGC seeks to address organisational and boardroom challenges in the pursuit of leading sustainability agenda for long-term economic performance and positive societal impact.

Climate Change

Driving companies' adoption of the principles of Climate Governance Initiative of the World Economic Forum

In collaboration with:

Climate change is posing an urgent threat to global economies, businesses, food supplies and even individual livelihoods. To encourage companies to adopt the principles of climate governance initiative of the World Economic Forum, The INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre had partnered with Chapter Zero France to empower and develop board directors so that they are equipped to actively address climate issues and fully integrate climate dimension into the company's strategy.
Through this strategic partnership, we seek to create space for board of directors to dialogue, exchange and develop solutions on issues relating to the governance of climate issues. The principles of the Climate Governance Initiative of the World Economic Forum include:
  • Develop a strategy and action plan for the transition to "net zero", including short-term deadlines;
  • Adopt and put into practice the recommendations of the TCFD (Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosure);
  • Incorporate in the remuneration of executives of criteria of assessment, specific and measurable, of the implementation of their climate strategy.
