Companies in Canada are increasingly affected by energy law and the push to decarbonization.   This session is intended for in-house counsel who don't necessarily practice in the energy area.   Topics include why companies may voluntarily adopt green and ESG targets, how they can achieve their targets, differing provincial frameworks, new securities rules for disclosing climate-related matters, legal risks of "greenwashing", and roles of in-house counsel in the new energy environment.  

Conor Chell is head of MLT Aikins’ ESG practice group.  Selena Chen is a corporate lawyer based out of the firm’s Vancouver office.  Ken Tennenhouse is counsel in the firm’s Energy practise group and retired general counsel of Manitoba Hydro.
