In today’s business environment stakeholder interests cannot be ignored. But isn’t the company about making profits? As such, why should we be addressing stakeholder interests at all? Will this not violate Hong Kong law? Further, with COVID-19 can and should director duties change in response to a time of unprecedented crisis where companies are struggling to survive? Should stakeholder concerns take a back seat?
This seminar will address these fundamental issues from the legal and practical governance perspectives and bring out practical issues and sharing. It will also discuss the concept of “Purposeful Governance” as a legally compliant applied stakeholder responsive approach to governance which the Institute is developing and promoting.
This seminar will address:
- Director duties and whether stakeholder interests could and/or should be considered, and to what extent? Whether the position changes with the post-COVID-19 economic climate?
- The importance of stakeholder engagement and how to go about this to identify and prioritise relevant stakeholder interests and in the context, the meaning of “purposeful governance”
- The increasing international investor concerns on responsible/sustainable investments
