With 20 years of in-depth expertise and proven leadership skills on sustainability / ESG, renewables, compliance, governance and organisational development under her belt, Maja de Vibe, Senior Vice President, Sustainability, Governance, and Compliance at Statkraft reveals all during her conversation with Andy Davies, Senior Partner at Kingsley Gate Partners.

“Do boards have the capabilities and competencies to know what to ask for when it relates to ESG and understand the difference between window dressing and actual progress?”

Maja shares recommendations and advice for boards to feature ESG in their boardroom strategy, how to ensure ESG is reflected in all your important business decisions, and what are the skills one must keep in mind as they hire the ‘right’ ESG talent.
