Breakout I – ESG for Boards: Getting Ready for New Realities

Organised by FutureBoards and supported by DNV

Venue: Galaxy 2

The traditional capitalistic growth model, that has been a zero-sum game for people and the planet, is increasingly being questioned. Fortunately, the general consensus that the business of business is not just business anymore, is actually embraced by a growing number of corporate leaders. This critical mindshift is accelerated by a number of stakeholders, including large institutional investors, NGOs, politicians and regulators. This session will address the E, the S and the G – a brief overview of trends and current regulations affecting the role, composition and work of the Board of directors.

Introductory presentations:

  • The E, the S and the G – Global trends and regulations, Ms Turid Solvang, CEO FutureBoards
  • ESG – Norway vs Asia, Ms Karin Greve Isdahl, Country Manager, Innovation Norway Vietnam
  • Asia in Focus: ESG and the BHR Agenda, Mr Sean Lees, Sustainability Expert, UNDP
  • Navigating in the jungle of taxonomies, Mr Thomas Leonard, Head of Section, Sustainability Services, Supply Chain & Product Assurance, DNV
  • ESG – the investor perspective, Dr. Somjin Sornpaisarn, President The Thai Bond Market Association
  • Mr Svein Stolpestad, Group Vice President Strategy and Sustainability, Jotun
  • Mr Lars Svensson, JFCCT Sustainable Development Chair, Chief Executive, Sasin Sustainability & Entrepreneurship Center
