On the Board Agenda 2021

Top of mind topics for Supervisory Board members

The Board Agenda 2021 for our Supervisory Board Program is a full agenda, reflecting current trends. Important topics as resilience, agility, purpose and ESG metrics make this agenda divers and relevant.

Introduction: A year of consequence

It seems likely that 2020 will be viewed as one of the most consequential years in recent memory. The ongoing global pandemic has caused massive economic and social issues among many other impactful disruptions. While the challenges of any year often influence boardroom agendas for the following year, the impact of 2020 on 2021 board agendas will almost certainly be extraordinary. At the same time, boards will need to deal with many perennial areas of board oversight, including strategy, financial reporting, compliance, and culture.


This On the Board’s Agenda discusses some of the many issues, old and new, that boards will likely have to contend with in the coming year. The following topics and issues are being discussed extensively in the agenda:

  • Resilience Reimagined
  • Workforce strategies
  • Consumer expectations
  • Integrated Reporting
  • Climate change
  • Inclusion & Diversity
  • AGMs
  • Towards common metrics
  • Focus on audit quality
  • Modernising risk assurance
  • Remuneration
