Governance: Practical Tips on Drafting and Implementing ESG Policies 

Jul. 20, 2022

OBA Canadian Corporate Counsel Association – Ontario Chapter PROGRAM
12:30 PM to 1:30 PM (ET)

The CCCA is pleased to partner with Torkin Manes LLP to share critical insights corporate governance and expand your corporate counsel toolkit!

This program is part of the CCCA In-House Counsel ESG Series. In this session we will be focusing on the effective generation and implementation of robust corporate governance documents to guide corporations through the currently evolving ESG landscape.  This session will offer practical tips to help you start to  build and/or improve your organization’s ESG framework.

The purpose of corporate governance is to facilitate effective, entrepreneurial, and prudent management that can lead to the long-term success of companies. As such, poor corporate governance can negatively impact a company’s performance and value.  In the backdrop of the Covid-19 pandemic and the pivotal shift to ESG principles and the ‘stakeholder inclusive’ approach, it is perhaps more important than ever for in-house counsel to understand and effectively advise their clients on relevant governance risks and opportunities, including strategies to support sustainable business models that foster economic development, social safety and environmental protection.  Hear from our panel of experts on the latest developments and best practices in preparing ESG-centric policies, including what constitutes as good corporate governance that investors would want to know about.
