Engaging the Board

Each of these companies has consciously engaged their board of directors in corporate activities in sustainable development, albeit in different ways. For some, such as BASF, Bayer, Degussa, and DuPont, a board member has direct accountability for sustainability initiatives. At other companies, including Air Products, Dow, DSM, and Praxair, the board plays an oversight role in monitoring the progress and direction of corporate sustainability plans defined by corporate sustainability centers of excellence. This finding leads to the conclusion that board involvement is key to the corporation achieving corporate success in sustainable development.
