Drivers for Sound Corporate Climate Governance: Insights on Board Governance & Stakeholder Comm.

BEC recently published a report “Corporate Governance for Climate Resilience: Emerging Challenges and Opportunities for Companies in Hong Kong” which discusses trends of corporate climate governance and understands the industry practices among Hong Kong companies. The report finds that listed companies in Hong Kong are demonstrating climate accountability through establishing Board-level sustainability committee, issuing Board statement on climate change/sustainability, and setting and reviewing emission reduction targets. The importance of Board awareness was further discussed, such that Board diversity, professional trainings and coordination between internal units are key to build climate resilience.

In this webinar, we explored how different stakeholders interact to enable strong climate governance and awareness. With the rise of stakeholder activism and increasing concerns towards climate change, how should companies respond and prepare for these transition risks? Join us at this webinar and listen from academics and industry experts on how climate change could be communicated within and outside the Board room.
