The Global Compact Board Programme is the first of its kind to align and support Boards of Directors to more effectively oversee and drive their company’s sustainability strategy by imposing a view to protect and support financial value creation. Through facilitating strategic discussions among the Board on pressing sustainability issues and how to evolve the role of the Board and corresponding governance tools, the Programme aims to help Boards to:
Align on the strategic imperative and materiality of corporate sustainability as critical for the company’s long-term viability.
Realise the integral role that Board members can and should play in overseeing, incentivising and driving corporate sustainability, embedding it into Board duties, governance mechanisms and structures.
Demonstrate leadership on Board adoption and oversight of corporate sustainability with investors, employees, customers and other stakeholders.
B.Accountability’s CEO, Helle Bank Jorgensen, is proud to be a Global Compact Board Programme Facilitator. As stated by the Global Compact Board Programme, facilitators are selected based on their ability to combine global and local contexts, as well as to understand the nuance of corporate governance in different jurisdictions.
