Issues for Boards 2023
22 March 2023
Boards face many challenges as they steer their companies through times of economic, geopolitical and technological change. Often the answer to dealing with these challenges will involve some basic principles of governance. Each year, in our Issues for Boards publication, we offer practical pointers to boards and general counsel on topical questions and actions boards should take. In 2023’s edition, we look at how boards of listed companies should prepare to handle an activist investor. We discuss how to draw up a good climate transition plan, the merits of involving investors in “say on climate” and the increasing dangers of being accused of greenwashing.
