How can company boards lead the sustainability transition?

Sign up for this event

Join Chapter Zero Brussels (another Chapter within our global network) for an informative webinar discussing how company boards can lead the sustainability transition.

What does sustainability transition mean for your company? What keeps you awake at night?

Policymakers and regulators are introducing new legislation on companies’ sustainability obligations that will profoundly impact businesses. Accountancy Europe, the European Confederation of Directors’ Associations (ecoDa), the European Confederation of Institutes of Internal Auditing (ECIIA) and Chapter Zero Brussels jointly invite non-executive directors to discuss how companies are:

  • Preparing for the European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), as a result of the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), and the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CS3D)
  • Identifying key Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) objectives
  • Dealing with the challenges that come with implementing those objectives in day-to-day activities

The event will also draw on the recent Accountancy Europe, ecoDa and ECIIA publication ESG Governance: questions boards should ask to lead the sustainability transition. It sets out practical questions that boards should consider in their efforts on ESG, sustainability transition planning, delivery on sustainability objectives and limiting greenwashing risks.

Please note this event has been organised by Chapter Zero Brussels.
