About the book
Stewards of the Future
Climate change and other environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues have become some of the biggest challenges faced by 21st-century board directors.
This book demonstrates that for long-term profits and sustainability, boards must have the insight to ask the right questions of management on complex issues such as climate change, ESG, corruption, cybersecurity, human trafficking, supply-chain resilience, and much more.
