This new research report by the Institute of Directors (IoD) in Ireland is in partnership with the Diligent Institute. This new report addresses important areas, such as: ESG oversight and responsibility; ESG board recruitment and training; ESG strategy and integration; and relevant ESG legislation.

Embracing ESG is not just about targets and legislation requirements, but also values. This new research reveals the importance with which ESG is being regarded in boardrooms. Setting realistic and accurate KPIs to measure ESG successes or failures will be crucial in leading to real traction and change in reaching ESG targets. It is crucial that all directors get up to speed on the essentials of ESG and what this means for their business, their sector and, indeed, wider society.
