Event Description

The time is now to shift to a sustainable economy. Policymakers need to focus on better outcomes rather than more rules. Boards must demand that ESG factors are embedded into the day-to-day running of the businesses. Corporate governance is a driver of a sustainable business. It’s time that businesses create value beyond financial profit.
