Join WBCSD and Baker McKenzie in an interactive webinar to understand the complexities of ESG-related risks and to better mitigate litigation risks associated with ESG performance, reporting and disclosure.
This webinar provides insight, tools and practical tips for companies to manage the complexities of ESG-related risks and to better mitigate litigation risks associated with ESG performance, reporting and disclosure.
The impacts of the global pandemic and the increasing drivers for climate action mean companies face significant and growing demands for transparency and scrutiny of their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. The market appetite for greater ESG information have resulted in companies to assess and to enhance their management and oversight of ESG-related risks.
In parallel, a more demanding external stakeholders are challenging companies to deliver on their ESG commitments and are seeking to hold companies accountable for alleged ESG-related performance and operational deficiencies. As a result, organizations are facing heightened conduct and litigation risks related to ESG performance.
