Why You Should Attend

The assessment and management of environment, social, and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities has become a critical priority for boards, management, and counsel as a result of a growing recognition of the connection between ESG and long-term value creation, significant changes in investor expectations, increasing pressure from customers and employees, and the advent of additional legal requirements. This newly expanded program, a must-attend for board members, company management, and in-house and outside counsel, will address the relationship of ESG to long-term value creation, the duties of directors with respect to ESG initiatives, the drivers of corporate adoption of ESG measures, ESG frameworks and standards, and best practices for ESG governance. Attend this program to better understand the significant recent developments that have led to the elevation of ESG as a key component of corporate governance and the practical changes companies are making to effectively respond to such developments.

  • Networking Reception hosted by Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP and Proskauer Rose LLP at 5:15pm on June 4
