ESG and corporate reputation: how should a Board respond? Rebecca Gudgeon, specialist in reputation management at Hudson Sandler
ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) has become a critical area for companies and the institutions which invest in them, who increasingly apply these non-financial factors as part of their analysis process to identify material risks and growth opportunities. As a result, it is an area which directors of a wide range of organisations (and their lawyers!) need to understand in the context of sustainability, reputational risk and responsible environmental and social stewardship.
Rebecca is one of the leading advisers on ESG, supporting leading UK and global brands. She is a partner at the communications firm Hudson Sandler and the head of its ESG consultancy – HS Sustain. Under Rebecca’s leadership, Hudson Sandler Sustain specialises in ‘cutting through the noise’.
ESG is a broad and complex topic but this will be an event which will give members clear insights into this developing and critical area.
