Based on CSB's research into the environmental, social, and governance-related credentials obtained by board members of the Fortune 100 in 2023 compared to 2018, Tensie Whelan published a piece in Fortune describing where boards are most and least equipped to work with management to navigate material ESG business impacts, and what companies should do to best engage with their boards.

Climate change, worker rights and welfare, geopolitical risk, cyber security, and corruption are just a few of the material sustainability issues that corporate leaders need to manage in order to reduce risk and drive positive financial returns. Engaging corporate boards in that journey will be critical to success."
