On a global scale, directors and senior management of public listed companies are now facing mounting pressure from investors, regulators, non-profit organizations, and other stakeholders to be proactive in evaluating competitive threats and understanding the current disruptive market trends. This includes environmental, societal and governance concerns.
Directors and senior management play an important role in shaping the organisation’s critical stakeholders – overseeing and ensuring that the strategy and risk management practices meet the needs of stakeholders and drive shareholder value.
This program will explore what sustainability is; global trends relating to sustainability; and why it is important for the board and senior management to prioritise sustainability. It will also discuss current requirements of the Bursa’s Listing Requirements as well as the Malaysian Code of Corporate Governance.

At the end of the program, participants will be able to:
- Recognise risks and opportunities in providing oversight of sustainability issues;
