Governance in focus — On the board agenda – half year 2022

Published on: 05 Jul, 2022

At a time when macro topics once again dominate, this half year edition of “On the Board Agenda” has two objectives – first, to act as a reminder of key matters for the half year report, and, second, to help you set the agenda for the remainder of the year, contextualised of course as usual.

In particular, we would like to draw your attention to articles on the following topics:

  • Technology – we highlight the interesting findings from the Deloitte Global Boardroom report on the Digital Frontier and we provide some early insights from our review of FTSE100 reporting on cyber risk.
  • Sustainability reporting – we provide a summary of recent developments to help boards navigate this challenging and increasingly important area of corporate reporting.
  • Government response to the BEIS White Paper – a guide to the new scoping requirements and signposting to more information on the detail of reform package and we provide some areas where boards may wish to get ahead.

We recognise that you have many important business topics on the agenda, but as you plan your board and audit committee agendas for the remainder of 2022 we hope you find this publication useful. To help you explore topics further we provide links to source materials.
