The world is in transition, and so is governance. The impact of societal, political and legislative changes on a board of directors is substantial. Today, we live through the transition of value creation to sustainable value creation. In 2021, the Belgian Code 2020 added an explanatory note about sustainable value creation. What does it mean? How can we embody it, bring it into reality, even in these politically and economically volatile times?
Though the principles of sustainable value creation are perhaps clear, how can we implement them concretely in a monthly meeting of the board of directors? How can we make the trade-off between going for a green transition and economic welfare? In every meeting, a director might be confronted by these questions.
Good governance is crucial as a means to reach better environmental and social conditions.
GUBERNA wants to offer you guidance how to successfully cope with those challenges, by its proven recipe of academic-based research and case studies combined with testimonials of experienced directors.
GUBERNA created together with Belgium’s 40 under 40 (Autumn Cohort 2021) a two-day programme on sustainable value creation.
What does sustainable value creation mean for me, my board and my organisation?
We will show you concrete, real and realistic cases to set you on the way of transforming your organisation from a focus on value creation to a focus on sustainable value creation.
Discover with us the concrete impact of EU ESG regulation on your board of directors. What changes, what doesn’t change? Analyze with us the impact of sustainable finance policies on your financial statements.
Work with us on a governance framework that is adaptable for your board and organisation. How ready is the composition of your board for the future?
This programme unites the expertise of GUBERNA with the engagement and transformative knowledge of Belgium’s 40 under 40. We also welcome the insights of Chapter Zero Brussels.
As a director, the concept of sustainability might raise different questions for you. Do you want clear information tailor made for directors? In day 1 we assess the legal and financial impact of sustainable value creation on your organization. Facts, figures and clear guidelines on how to prevent a negative impact are given.
Do you struggle with bringing the topic to your board? How do you start with sustainability on board level? In day 2 we look at sustainability from a board’s perspective. How can leadership make the difference? What tools do you have as a board to bring sustainability forward?
You can follow one or both days of this training.
