Last week, Diligent hosted a webinar with the World Economic Forum, Bank of America and EY to preview a forthcoming set of environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics. The new ESG framework has been developed by the World Economic Forum’s International Business Council (IBC), a working group comprised of 120 CEOs of global companies, with the goal of consolidating all existing frameworks (SASB, GRI, MSCI) into one set of global standards for companies and investors.
In this episode, Brian Stafford, CEO of Diligent, highlights key takeaways from the webinar:
- What should boards know about the International Business Council’s forthcoming ESG metrics?
- What will it take for companies to achieve long-term behavioral changes?
- How will ESG impact private companies?
