Reflecting the government mandate, ÖBAG encapsulates a long-term outlook and focuses on establishing sustainable solutions and best practice governance standards in its participations. As part of our initiatives, we conducted the ÖBAG Forum. At the ÖBAG Forum, we aim to promote an open, diverse and participatory environment where innovative ideas can flourish. We held our first Forum on 17 October 2019, focusing on sustainability and corporate governance.
In this context, Frithjof Norman Lund (Partner, McKinsey & Company) gave a lecture on “Whats Changing in Board Governance.” Wilhelm G. Schulz discussed the topic of sustainability and ESG. The conference addressed 200 decision makers covering business, academia and industry and was inaugurated by the President of the Republic of Austria, Alexander van der Bellen.
