Governance Challenges 2017 – Complimentary Report

National Association of Corporate DirectorsThe National Association of Corporate Directors annually collaborates with its five strategic-content partners to provide guidance for boards of directors on a hot-button governance issue. This year’s topic is ESG, or environmental, social, and governance oversight — an issue that strongly impacts corporate sustainability.

The NACD has made the report available for downloading at no charge.

The report provides ESG guidance in order to help directors:

  • ensure the board and executive team have the right skills for driving ESG performance;
  • connect environmental and social issues to the company’s business mission;
  • communicate the company’s environmental and social efforts to investors, and to stakeholders;
  • understand the financial impact of climate risks and improve related disclosures; and
  • link compensation to financial results and ESG factors.
