Dawn of the Cyber-Directors: Enterprise Governance, ESG and AI

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractResearch


In this presentation, Professor James will explore the intersection of enterprise governance, ESG principles, and artificial intelligence. Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in the range and urgency of ESG
considerations for boards. A variety of legal
developments such as changes to anti-discrimination laws, modern slavery legislation, climate change laws, and the Royal Commissions in Aged Care, Disability, Sexual Misconduct of Institutions, Finance and Banking, among others, have significantly impacted the governance landscape. This increased complexity has led to a more onerous governance burden for boards and senior management teams. The adoption of AI technology in enterprise decision-making processes has the potential to ease that burden.

Professor James will examine how enterprises can enhance their governance processes using AI to ensure they are adequately addressing ESG concerns. He will discuss the ways in which AI can assist enterprises in identifying ESG risks and opportunities, as well as how it can enable more transparent and accountable reporting. He will also consider the ethical implications of using AI in enterprise decision-making. Finally, he will examine how enterprises can effectively integrate AI into their existing governance and ESG frameworks. By doing so, enterprises can improve their ability to manage ESG risks, meet stakeholder expectations, and ultimately enhance long-term value creation.
