The world is in transition, and the impact of societal, political and legislative changes on a board of directors is not to be underestimated. Today, we witness the transition of value creation to sustainable value creation, in real life cases as well as in the codes and the law. In 2021, the Belgian Code 2020 added an explanatory note about sustainable value creation. But what does the concept mean? How can we embody sustainable value creation, bring it into reality, even in these politically and economically volatile times? 

  • To answer these questions, GUBERNA created a two-days programme on sustainable value creation with Belgium's 40 under 40 (Autumn Cohort 2021).
  • This programme offers guidance on how to cope with the challenges of implementing sustainable value creation through academic-based research, case studies, and testimonials of experienced directors.
  • The purpose of this GUBERNA training course is to show how directors can successfully cope with the challenges of sustainable value creation in the context of governance.
