Since December 2022, there is a new Corporate Governance Code in place. This Code states that business leaders are responsible for sustainable long-term value creation and that companies must draw up policies for diversity and inclusion. Tineke Lambooy, Professor of Corporate Law at Nyenrode Business Universiteit, explains how business leaders can embed ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) values in their strategy.
To support organizations in the transition to sustainability, Nyenrode Business Universiteit and KPMG jointly founded the ESG Innovation Institute. Dr. Jeroen van der Velden and Prof. Jeff Gaspersz are both connected to this institute and explain how innovation contributes to business transformation.
While in the last decades an organization’s success was measured mainly in terms of turnover, profitability, market share and customer satisfaction, now and in the future they will also be held accountable for the impact they make on people, the environment and society. ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) is now central to the balanced scorecard.
Leadership changes when executives are held accountable for their contribution to people, the environment, and society. So say more than three-quarters of policymakers in a recent survey by KPMG and Nyenrode Business University.
In this video Stephanie Hottenhuis, CEO and Chair of the Board of Management KPMG Nederland, en Jessica Peters-Hondelink, Director Customized Executive Education at Nyenrode Business Universiteit, explains why the ESG Innovation Institute offers the Executive ESG Program.
