Today, more is expected of businesses than ever before, with their role and impact on society increasingly under the microscope. Environmental and social issues are driving new needs in the market, new stakeholder expectations, new legal and regulatory frameworks, and redefined business success metrics.

It is therefore crucial for all business leaders to understand the full ESG landscape in order to be equipped to identify and address material risks, opportunities, dependencies and impacts across their businesses and value chains.

This includes understanding and adopting best practices for leading their organisations, both from within and outside of their sector, and acting upon the innovation opportunities that lie beyond incremental changes to business-as-usual.

All this is essential for those seeking to grow resilient enterprises which are capable of thriving in a rapidly and profoundly changing world.
