Are you ready to act now on ESG?

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors have become a global imperative, placing companies under increasing scrutiny. This heightened stakeholder focus means boards are confronted with new expectations. Yet few directors are equipped to govern ESG issues.

IMD’s Driving Sustainability from the Boardroom is a highly experiential program that immerses you in the complex and multifaceted realities of ESG. Part of IMD’s collaboration with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), it will enable you to fulfill your role of influencing and steering the integration of sustainability into your company’s strategy.

ESG Literacy

Be ready to lead conversations and ask the right questions in and out of the boardroom by acquiring full ESG literacy.

ESG Upsides

Identify and leverage ESG opportunities for your company’s long-term success and reputation.

ESG Stewardship

Understand how ESG expands your fiduciary and accountability duties in your role as steward of your company’s long-term success.

ESG Crisis Management

Gain experience of handling difficult ESG conversations and responding to ESG crises through immersive in-class simulations.

You and your class

You are a current or aspiring board member, chairperson or board secretary. You understand that sustainability and ESG are boardroom imperatives and want to efficiently elevate your stewardship role for your company’s future.

Your class is carefully selected to ensure a truly diverse group of global peers. Your class will become a trusted resource, encourage your learning journey and surprise you in many unanticipated beneficial ways both during and beyond your classroom experience.

It is becoming increasingly clear that good governance drives environmental and social responsibility, not the other way round. To be future-fit, boards must understand how their companies can deliver on their ESG commitments through a robust strategy.
