How financial performance and responsibility is all about managing human Stakeholders

Businesses are increasingly embracing responsible commercial practice by adopting ESG strategies that can resolve the environmental, social and governance issues they face.

It is increasingly recognised that truly embedding ESG matters into culture and operations corresponds to long term value generation for all stakeholders.

However, as market, social, economic and political changes accelerate these ESG challenges, companies face a rapidly evolving business context across all jurisdictions and industries.

Current attention has naturally focused on issues of managing and reporting Environmental impact. Yet, investors, businesses and regulators increasingly recognise that it is Social, or human factors, that are the glue which drive material outcomes; both financial value and ESG risk. This presents new, fundamental questions for boards and c-suites, such as:

  • How can an “S” strategy integrate core business management systems, practice and reporting?
  • How can you navigate optimising the financial performance of your business with responsibilities to all your human Stakeholders – workers, suppliers, customers and communities?
  • How can you best address the legal and regulatory “S” issues that are now emerging?

This webinar (which will take the form of a panel discussion) is designed to help you understand how to resolve the challenges that “S” presents. It will also help you identify opportunities to maximise your company’s long-term value, economic stability and sustainable growth and provide you with potential solutions to help address the “S”.
