Transforming your organisation's impact into a strategic asset for decision-making and ESG risk management

The set menu lunch is $25.00 inc. GST per person. Please note that by committing to attend, you are committed to pay for lunch.


Dr Habberton is the co-founder of the Relativ Group, an impact solutions provider with offices in New Zealand, Canada and South Africa and a client base in over 30 countries (including corporations, investors, social enterprises, foundations and non-profits and government agencies).

Every organisation has an impact on people and the planet. What kind of impact does your organisation and your team have? In this session, Dr Colin Habberton will share his experience and research on how to leverage your organisation’s impact and manage ESG risks to identify opportunities for new growth and value creation.

Boards are increasing their focus on understanding the risks and opportunities arising from ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) factors and their impact on profitability and performance. These factors have begun to directly influence financial markets – evidenced by a positive correlation between the share price and good sustainable practices, indicating the significance of investor influence on share price, stakeholder awareness and the importance of high-quality information and transparency. Additionally, new climate regulations and IFRS’ drive towards global accounting standards for recording and disclosing these practices to those investors and stakeholders is advancing the convergence towards common standards that are likely to impact all organisations.

In his presentation, he will illustrate through global case studies how co-created impact management plans show how you and your team can measure organisational impact for enhancing your governance, engaging your stakeholders, and identifying opportunities for innovation while mitigating and adapting to social and planetary change.
