Executive Summary

Managing a business has become a more challenging exercise in recent decades. For the C-Suite, rebalancing and meeting the expectations of shareholders and stakeholders has become the top priority. Given the speed of change in – and complexity of – the market, firms must seek to implement technology that can both support the business and develop its resilience, as well as expand the skillsets and talent found within an organization.

ESG risk is not a new concept. However, the current momentum behind it is resulting in a metamorphosis within boardrooms, regardless of the industry or regions in which they operate, forcing businesses to reconstitute their governance structures and business strategies for the medium and long term.
