Integrating ESG in the next phase of Business Growth - Intro

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are becoming a global phenomenon, placing companies under increasing scrutiny. This heightened stakeholder focus indicates that boards are confronted with new expectations. However, not many global organisations and their leaders are equipped to adopt ESG issues in their business goals. In addition to external pressures to address ESG issues, more and more organisations are also realising the benefits of embedding ESG criteria in their financial & business practices to reduce their exposure to a range of risks, and to improve their baseline performance, which will be sustainable over the long term. Our recently held webinar, ‘Sustainability and the next phase of Business Growth’ stressed on the key facets that have an impact on the organisations’ ESG metrics. Our illustrious panellists’ captivating & forward-looking visions & experiences will surely not just be an eye opener for companies, they will also offer companies a great head start towards implementing ESG agenda in full throttle.
