Sustainability. Beyond the Rhetoric Governance

Oct 16, 2020

VENUE: Webinar

TIME: 11.00-12.00

Business in the Community Ireland

In these turbulent times, it is tempting to be cautious, cut costs, and generally focus on short term thinking and survival. However, companies who take a long term, sustainable approach outperform their competitors. Investors, consumers, and employees are increasingly demanding good governance and transparency from businesses. Top class governance gives organisations the ability to see beyond the rhetoric and the immediate crisis and address substantive issues to continuously improve the way they make decisions, engage stakeholders and critically examine their purpose. Join us to hear top business leaders in Ireland discuss how their governance has given them the competitive edge.


  • Anastasia Guha – Director of Northern Europe, Middle East and Africa at Principles for Responsible Investment
  • Rodney Irwin – Managing Director of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development’s (WBCSD) Redefining Value and Education programs
  • Ger Mitchell, HR and Corporate Development Director PTSB
  • Ian Anderson, Group Chief Operating Officer, Momentum Support
