International seminar in Oslo with Professor Robert G. Eccles

The first international SISVI seminar was held 22. February in Oslo. We were so lucky to have with us Robert G. Eccles, a Professor of Management Practice from Harvard Business School. Professor Eccles is the world’s foremost expert on integrated reporting and one of the world’s leaders on how companies and investors can create sustainable strategies.

The seminar started with the SISVI companies giving short presentations of themselves and their strategies for innovation and sustainability. Professor Eccles continued with presentations of the “performance frontier” and how to become a sustainable company. A group session followed, where discussions based on the presentations were held to identify material ESG-issues where the companies could improve. The seminar was concluded by Professor Eccles giving a us a world tour of what goes on in the capital markets, explaining the changing role of corporate boards.

The seminar report is available here.
