We have added another tool to our toolbox. Our newest guidebook is now available – 10 Tips for How ESG Leadership and Staff Can Support Company Boards.
While many companies have invested in ESG staff, program development and data systems, directors heavily rely on in-house ESG leaders and staff to educate and inform them on the issues. This is a double-edged sword — it brings board-level visibility, credibility and status to ESG leaders/staff, while also putting a burden on them to convey complex, ambiguous and potentially intangible matters in an effective way to what can be a difficult audience. ESG leaders/staff must recognize and address challenges in this regard that include communicating with board members who:
- Lack ESG expertise
- Frequently do not know what ESG issues their companies face
- May not think “E” and “S” issues are important
Ultimately, boards make important ESG decisions for the company. Your job as an ESG leader or staff member is to provide directors with adequate information in the best context for them to understand ESG issues and make critical decisions. Our Guidebook will help you present information effectively in ways that best resonate with board members or facilitate their understanding.
