ESG is quickly rising on board agendas. Many major corporations now have dedicated ESG committees on their boards, are adding to their ESG skillsets, and are holding executive leadership accountable for ESG performance. But does this perception of increased ESG integration match up to reality? In this session, we will hear from current board members of major corporations as well as external groups pushing for more ESG board integration. They will provide their own perspectives on what really happens on ESG inside the boardroom and how it currently matches up with stakeholder expectations.
