Time to build back better corporate governance with Mathilde Mesnard from the OECD

In our first episode of 2021, Mathilde Mesnard, Deputy Director for Financial and Enterprise Affairs at the OECD, discusses the global debate around corporate governance. She breaks down the incremental changes that businesses have made to become more responsible and sustainable, but she sees now, that a more fundamental shift is necessary. She talks about a system change, re-focusing corporate purpose on environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters. We also touch upon the work being done at EU level to advance this discussion and create new norms for businesses.

Last November, we discussed the work at EU level to embed sustainability at the heart of business decision-making when we interviewed Olivier Boutellis-Taft CEO at Accountancy Europe. That episode is a good companion to this discussion, and we suggest you give it a listen.
