Risk oversight is one of the board’s core responsibilities, and oversight of ESG-related risks requires boards to have the right governance practices. Boards not only have to oversee how ESG risks are being mitigated but also need to consider how their company is telling its ESG story and ultimately look for related opportunities.  

Our panel of experts will provide practical insight for governance professionals on creating the right governance mechanics to oversee ESG issues, managing disclosures in the proxy statement and tackling the potential for activist campaigns. 

Topics for discussion include: 

  • What are best practices for disclosing both ESG risks and the company’s mitigation efforts in the proxy statement?  
  • What are best practices for avoiding or defending against an ESG activist challenging the board? 
  • What should governance teams look for in terms of board structure and committees’ responsibilities to ensure ESG risks are being overseen effectively?  
  • How can directors best be deployed in investor engagement around ESG risks?  
  • How can governance teams ensure the correct ESG risk issues are on the agenda during board meetings? 
  • What is the best approach to ensure the board has the necessary skills to oversee ESG risks?  
  • How can governance teams ensure boards are kept fully advised on relevant ESG risks?

Connor Kuratek, deputy general counsel & corporate secretary, Marsh McLennan

Greg Reppucci, director, sustainability & corporate governance, Morrow Sodali
