Stewards of the Future: A Guide for Competent Boards

How do you get a corporation to change its views on society and the environment?  Start with its board of directors. They determine the heart and soul of an organization.  That’s vital now, with companies around the world examining environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in the wake of 2021’s COP26 summit in Glasgow.  It’s quite possible to achieve both profit and environmental sustainability, but that requires deep thinking.  A board must ask direct questions on a range of complex issues:  climate change, ESG, corruption, cybersecurity, human trafficking, and supply-chain resilience. Helle Bank Jorgensen interviewed over 100 board members, experts, and executives for her new book, Stewards of the Future.  Their wisdom – and practical pointers on how corporations can realistically be part of the solution – is shared in the book…and in this episode, as Helle gives host Maureen Metcalf an overview of her guide for a profitable and planet-friendly future.
