Panel Discussion: ESG isn’t all about the Environment – Putting the S&G back into ESG
Lionel Taylor joined a CSFI moderated panel that also included Paul Fisher (Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership) and Mark Goyder (Tomorrow’s Company) to discuss the role of ‘S’ and ‘G’ in ESG.
Why you should watch: There is a lot more to ESG than concern about the environment. Governance concerns have a long history in the UK, and there are perennial issues that have to be confronted, such as accounting probity, executive pay, transparency and responsibility. Have they gotten worse in an era of founder-controlled tech and e-commerce companies? Has Covid19 made these concerns more relevant by, for instance, interrupting just-in-time supply chains? How much should we take human rights issues into consideration? There are lots of issues to get our teeth into, and – thanks to a distinguished panel – a lively discussion ensued.
Moderators: Andrew Hilton (Director, CSFI) & Jane Fuller (Co-director, CSFI)
