Redefining Sustainability Governance in COVID-19 Crisis?

Webinar & Digital Dialogue

 

Tuesday, 30 June 2020, 9:00 AM (CEST)

Redefining Sustainability Governance in COVID-19 Crisis?

Organised by the INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre (ICGC), in collaboration with the Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society (HGIBS) and World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD)

The business world is undergoing tremendous changes in the face of disruptive forces. From public health crisis to seismic shifts in global economic outlook, social instability and environmental challenges, corporate boards and business leaders are under intense pressure to navigate the highly complex landscape with a long-term strategic vision and smarter than rational decision-making. It is time to develop governance capabilities to combine performance with meaning.

Organised by the INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre, in collaboration with the Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the Webinar and Digital Dialogue session will explore the key drivers that are shaping the global landscape today and the imperative for corporate boards to taking a leading stand in advancing sustainability agenda from the boardroom. To govern sustainability amid times of increased uncertainties and risks, it is critical to establish stakeholders engagement and harness wise power. Through an innovative multi-lens approach which galvanises the benefit of cognitive analysis with emotional affiliation, board directors and business leaders will be motivated to expand their perspectives to formulate the best decision among a repertoire of responses to bring alignment to vision, purpose and action under challenging circumstances.

Led by Professor Marc Le Menestrel, Affiliate Professor of Decision Sciences, Professor Ludo Van der Heyden, INSEAD Chaired Professor of Corporate Governance and Philippe Joubert, Founder and CEO of Earth on Board, Trustee of Client Earth and Senior Adviser and Special Envoy Energy and Climate at WBCSD, the session will draw insights from faculty as well as leading experts, board members and panelists who will share their journey in governing sustainability in challenging times followed by practical workshops.
