Sustainability and Long Term Value

Discover how you can drive strategic growth, sustainability and long-term value from the boardroom.

8 CPD points

The board’s engagement in developing your long-term strategy is essential because an engaged board and a long-term approach are valuable indicators of an organisations ability to create long-term value for stakeholders.

Course/workshop category: Focused short course

Duration: One day, 8.30am – 5.00pm

Directors and boards must ask themselves: What role do we play in the community? How are we managing our impact on the environment? Are we working to create a diverse workforce? Are we adapting to technological change? As a director you need to have a deeper involvement in the long-term strategy.

At this one-day course you will explore the environmental, social and governance matters that are essential in driving sustainable growth.
