New regulatory requirements demand sustainability upskilling

The landscape of global corporate governance is rapidly transforming worldwide due to the implementation of ISSB’s global standards, the EU’s CSRD, the SEC’s Climate Disclosure Rule and other regulation. These mandate the disclosure of sustainability-related risks and opportunities and board members’ competency in climate and ESG matters.

A Corporate Subscription Plan will ensure leaders stay current and compliant to effectively manage sustainability challenges and create value for your business.

From an insurer perspective

When asked to provide D&O insurance, insurers look at competencies at the board level similarly to the health of an individual seeking life insurance. Seeing that Competent Boards are educating a company’s leadership indicates good governance health and can positively influence corporate insurance premiums.
