A4S Essential Guide to Engaging the Board and Executive Management

Board engagement tools

To compliment our guidance we have created three board engagement tools. These tools identify ways to engage the board outside of the regular board meetings and help board members make informed decisions and establish accountability.

Boards and executive management teams are under increasing pressure to approach the governance and management of sustainability in the same way as they would with any other business risk or opportunity.

By understanding the business case for change, finance can inform, actively support, and challenge the board and executive management to adopt a business model that delivers sustainable outcomes.

Download this guide to help you understand the current landscape and how you can support sustainable decision making, leveraging your finance or accounting role.

The guide illustrates how finance teams can use regular board activities to demonstrate that sustainability is a key driver of value. It includes practical guidance through a three-step framework and case studies to show successful implementation.
