Published on: 23 January 2022

As organisations acknowledge the need to transition to low-carbon or net zero, investors and board members expect management to develop the strategy to mitigate business’ risk exposure to climate change, and to capture opportunities in climate transition. But how can organisations plan and incentivise top executives to drive their climate transition strategy?

Join us at the upcoming Climate Governance Singapore (CGS) training series to learn more about what the implications for the Board are in relation to stewardship, strategic planning and executive compensation.
