Overseeing Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) Issues: Risk Quantification, Identification, Mitigation and Disclosure

Wednesday, December 8, 2021, 12:00-1:30 p.m. ET


 
Risks from environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues such as human rights, climate change and water scarcity are becoming more and more prevalent, as is growing investor attention and action on these issues. Corporate boards and their advisors must have a thorough understanding of how ESG issues affect legal and business strategies and performance. Help your client minimize the associated risks by learning how to:

  • Quantify potential ESG risks: understanding the potential financial impacts and liabilities
  • Formalize oversight of ESG risks at the board level: structures and risk related decision making
  • Understand what strategies are available to mitigate or adapt to ESG risks
  • Update charters to address ESG: best practices
  • Comply with disclosure requirements, voluntary and involuntary, and draft disclosures without attracting liability
  • Communicate an ESG strategy to internal and external stakeholders
