Solvang and Skancke: Impact Thinking in the Boardrooms

Ep. 30

Sustainability and financial risk has been two separate topics for corporate reporting. This is changing. Do we need Chief Value Officers who integrate the two: the company's impact on the external environment, and vice versa, the environmental impact on the company?

How will your business make money in a world that has met the Sustainable Development Goals? Who are the people in the boardrooms, and what knowledge and competencies do they need for ensuring that the business operates inside some set planetary boundaries, and give long-term value for shareholders?
