As a new decade begins, and the global business community continues to address the twin crises around public health and the economy, corporations are examining their role within our socio-economic system. With a renewed focus on human, social, and natural capital, in addition to financial performance, corporations are looking to position themselves within a sustainability framework as they adapt to a changing world.
Fasken’s ESG & Sustainability Group has been bringing Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues into focus through a series of webinars. These sessions feature Fasken lawyers as well as guest speakers from global organizations and address a wide range of different ESG aspects. We hope you will find the series content to date of interest and we hope that you can participate in some of the planned sessions.
