Baltic Institute of Corporate Governance (BICG) and Lithuanian Internal Auditors Association (IIA Lithuania) invite Baltics board and audit committee members, risk officers and internal auditors to join the January 25, 2023 seminar on how the Board of Directors, the Risk Management and the Internal Audit need to cooperate in order to embed sustainability into organizations strategy and operations.

During this seminar, we will discuss:

» Governance models such as the Three Lines to foster cooperation among all functions and operations within a company, so that sustainability can be truly embedded in business operations and strategic sustainability-related objectives can be achieved.
