In reaction to shareholder and stakeholder shifting values, corporations now aim to develop and implement sustainability tactics that align with their business strategies.

Despite organizations adopting the appropriate mindset, there is significant room for improvement in the effectiveness of the execution and accountability of their sustainability programs. So what role does the board play in ensuring that sustainability is embedded in the organization? What does this look like in practice? What pitfalls or oversight should the board be cognizant of?

Join us as Dr. Yilmaz Argüden dives deeper into the board’s role in ensuring that a sustainability agenda is fully integrated throughout the organization.
