Welcome to our ESG for BOD network that was launched by Futureboards, DNV, UN Global Compact Norway and SKIFT in 2021. Through our exclusive training courses and our sharing network, your board will have the unique opportunity to be certified for your sustainability competence.
The objective of the network is to secure that board members have the knowledge to support the company to lift their sustainability focus to a sustainable strategy. When being responsible for the non-financial activities at the same level as the financial activities, it’s crucial to ask the right questions and be aware of the risks and opportunities the company is facing. The ESG for BOD network offers arenas where board members and directors, investors and top managers gain competence, exchange knowledge and experience on how ESG can and should affect the boards’ role, composition, and work processes.
You have several opportunities to join the network and receive your certificate.

Class #1: Strategy
