Heidrick & Struggles: Next steps for Boards on Sustainability
Heidrick & Struggles’ Jeremy Hanson speaks to Mike Stiller, the global head of the ESG Advisory & Engagement Practice at NASDAQ, about how boards are prioritizing sustainability, particularly climate change.
85% of board members surveyed said their board needs to increase its knowledge of climate change.
Stiller shares three steps boards should be taking right now:
- Upskilling either the whole board or select members to increase climate-related skills
- Undergoing a climate-readiness assessment
- Doing a full assessment of the board’s current skills matrix to understand where the gaps exist
