Data Finds Link Between Sustainability and Gender Mix on Management Boards
PARIS — When women have a stronger presence on company management boards and executive committees, it also has a positive impact on their sustainability decision-making. That is the finding of the latest research from Ethics & Boards, a Paris-based watchdog that uses data to benchmark key corporate social responsibility criteria on companies worldwide.
The new data was revealed Thursday by Ethics & Boards cofounder Floriane de Saint Pierre in a webinar hosted by Paris Good Fashion, an initiative aiming to push the fashion industry toward adopting more sustainable practices, held just ahead of International Women’s Day next week. “We can have a major role to play when it comes to key decisions within a company,” summed up de Saint Pierre.
