Integrated Governance: A New Model of Governance for Sustainability — report by UNEP Financial Initiative is out

The Inte­grated Gov­er­nance model is the sys­tem by which com­pa­nies are directed and con­trolled, in which sus­tain­abil­ity issues are inte­grated in a way that ensures value cre­ation for the com­pany and ben­e­fi­cial results for all stake­hold­ers in the long term. The report illus­trates the inad­e­qua­cies of cur­rent cor­po­rate gov­er­nance prac­tices and out­lines three phases that help com­pa­nies move towards Inte­grated Gov­er­nance, lead­ing to a holis­tic inte­gra­tion of sus­tain­abil­ity in their cor­po­rate strategies.

Devel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with lead­ing gov­er­nance experts from Har­vard Busi­ness School and UNEP FI’s Asset Man­age­ment Work­ing Group, the report pro­poses a model of Inte­grated Gov­er­nance that puts sus­tain­abil­ity at the heart of gov­er­nance and cor­po­rate boards’ strate­gic agendas.
