The health, economic, and social crises that unfolded in 2020 have presented businesses with challenges that are more important, urgent, and complex than ever before. To be successful in the next decade, companies need to emphasize the sustainability conversation within the context of materiality, impact, and governance. At the Governance & Sustainability Center, we focus on helping our members address these unprecedented issues and navigate their own evolving role in society. We do so by providing trusted, timely, and actionable insights in the areas of corporate governance, sustainability, and citizenship.
