Environmental sustainability and organisational performance: Ethical implications

Now that New Zealand’s Climate Change Commission has issued its first draft report, New Zealand organisations will find that their ability to retain a social licence to operate demands a higher level of environmental sustainability.

Reaching this new minimum threshold will require significant effort and resources which, in a COVID-complicated world, will place substantial demands on senior managers’ leadership and decision-making abilities.

This symposium will explore the increasingly important social and ethical considerations senior managers must weigh up in a world experiencing extreme environmental degradation and accelerating climate change.

Speakers include:

  • Hon David Parker, Minister for the Environment
  • Karen McWilliams, Business Reform Leader, Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand
  • Jane Taylor, Professional Director
  • Associate Professor Sara Walton, Department of Management, University of Otago
