However, as there are still many looming uncertainties, we must not be complacent. We should learn the true meaning of resilience and gain skills in implementing sustainability initiatives and engaging stakeholders in developing sustainable business practices in such VUCA times." Citing the HKIoD Corporate Governance Scorecard, Dr To noted that Hong Kong listed companies have been improving in corporate governance over the past 16 years while the demands have been increasing as per global trends.

Dr Carlye Tsui SBS JP, Chief Executive Officer, HKIoD, said: "Crises can make an organisation stronger and more resilient when its leaders have the determination, foresight and wisdom to turn the tide and triumph over turbulence. We should all be seeking proven measures to help our organisations fend off challenges and achieve true sustainability." Learning from COVID-19, Dr Tsui noted the global director perspective that the top items on board agenda are broader risk-set, enhanced ESG and greater stakeholder communication.
