Companies of all sizes and across industries are experiencing an increased focus on environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG} issues. Whether it is climate change, social justice, diversity and inclusion, reconciliation, sustainability concerns or governance oversight over these issues, in-house legal counsel and legal teams are being asked to advise their executive teams and board members when it comes to ESG issues. Our panel will discuss the contribution and support that legal involvement can provide as organisations navigate the ever evolving ESG landscape and work to address the growing expectations of a broad range of stakeholders including investors, consumers, communities, suppliers and employees.
