Leading sustainability for growth – what directors need to know

Sustainable and inclusive business growth is not only good for the planet, research shows that companies which integrate ESG into their growth strategies outperform their peers.

Analysis by McKinsey & Co demonstrates that a strong ESG commitment adds additional shareholder value for companies that also exceed their peers in growth and profitability. mMcKinsey say: “The message is clear: not only can you do well while doing good—you can do better.”

Join us for a series of four half day sessions and takeaway the knowledge and skills to put the critically important issue of sustainability at the heart of your business. Led by Professor Simon Haslam CDir, who brings more than 20 years’ experience of consulting across the private, public and third sectors, learn how to lead a sustainable organisation and gain valuable insights into the growing environmental challenges and social responsibilities faced by businesses.

Understand the role of the board in leading your organisation’s response to climate change and the ESG agenda, and the importance of embedding measurable ESG challenges into your strategy and culture. Discover how other organisations are responding to the challenges of ESG and the value that can bring to your own business’ endeavours.

The four sessions of the online course take place over four different dates and you must be able to attend all four sessions:
