Theme 4: Growing responsibly
The days of “move fast and break things” are over, and businesses must now address profitability and growing public demand for corporate responsibility.
More than ever, consumers, regulators and business leaders are demanding that vendors are diverse and inclusive and follow ESG best practices. In short, the c-suite is being challenged on all fronts to put responsibility at the heart of their businesses. Sound corporate governance is critical to developing effective strategies that can adapt to these demands.
And as supply chain risks and tax and other regulations evolve, growing organisations must review their existing global footprints and corporate structures to stay competitive. They must promote efficiencies while also ensuring transparency and economic substance in a regulatory environment and court of public opinion that has never been stricter.
