Symposium 2020 - ESG and the In-House Counsel - Legal Tools and Business Impacts

ESG & Sustainability | Corporate/Commercial


Consumers and investors are increasingly demanding better environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance from Canadian businesses. In response, business leaders are adopting enhanced governance measures, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives and new business models. Join us to learn more about ESG’s changing legal context and how in-house counsel can add value when advising on commercial risks and opportunities in a “beyond compliance” world.

Discussed in this session:

  • The role of In-House Counsel in corporate CSR initiatives.
  • New structuring options for BC corporations, including Benefit Companies.
  • Risks and opportunities in corporate responses to climate change.
