Brief Notes for Your Favorite Investor Relations Officer To Help Move the Needle on Sustainability at The Board Level in 2016
If you are a corporate investor relations officer, you’ll want to read this week’s Top Story. If you are a manager looking for information to take over to the IR office in your company, this is good for helping to “build the investment case.” IR magazine, an authoritative voice for the investor relations professional, puts the recent Ceres report in focus.
Ceres, an important NGO, recently released a brief summary that calls attention to important topics for the board room and C-suite – climate change, pollution, diversity, workers’ rights, governance issues – and the board room general lack of oversight of these important issues. What is the board room missing out on? What should the IR professional tune in to regarding corporate sustainability?
The IR Magazine article by Adam Brown is a good conversation starter for the sustainability manager and the IR manager. Conclusions reached include tying executive compensation to sustainability advances and urging the board to pay more attention to “the extraordinary challenges of global climate change” and more. It’s a good quick read for the IR officer.
