In this panel discussion our experts will discuss lawyers’ day-to day work in ESG.

ESG – Environmental, Social and Governance – is increasingly influenced by legal teams who can help shape the culture and corporate decision-making of companies. This webinar will discuss: existing initiatives that lawyer should be aware of and what lawyers can proactively do to further ESG.
