Understanding ESG

This workshop builds on the history and rich literature in Governance to help executives understand the more complex – and rapidly expanding – ESG framework used to evaluate companies today. This involves attention and duties to the many stakeholders in a business (e.g. employees, customers, suppliers, etc.), not just its shareholders.
This will provide a more holistic view of your company in the context of ESG.
