We are pleased to be collaborating with Baker McKenzie to deliver a series of informative webinars with legal and content experts that address different challenges and opportunities related to COVID-19, environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects and business.
Managing ESG risks and the rise of ESG litigation
The impacts of the global pandemic and the increasing drivers for climate action mean companies face significant and growing demands for transparency and scrutiny of their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. The market appetite for greater ESG information have resulted in companies to assess and to enhance their management and oversight of ESG-related risks. In parallel, a more demanding external stakeholders are challenging companies to deliver on their ESG commitments and are seeking to hold companies accountable for alleged ESG-related performance and operational deficiencies. As a result, organizations are facing heightened conduct and litigation risks related to ESG performance.
Register here for 3-4 pm CET/9-10 am EST 25 February for our webinar that will provide you with:
This webinar builds on concepts outlined by Baker McKenzie in the report Growing ESG Risks: The Rise of Litigation and by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) in their guidance Applying Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) to ESG-related risks.
The session is conducted by Gordon Darling, WBCSD and David Hackett, Baker McKenzie with the support of sustainability, risk and litigation experts.
Maximizing Workforce Agility
The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing companies to re-examine their work from home or remote work policies. There is no one size fits all plan. Many companies have moved rapidly to a remote workforce during the pandemic, and for some, remote work has been so successful that they are contemplating making the change permanent.
In this program, multi-disciplinary team of Baker McKenzie practitioners will discuss the legal considerations, share best practices around designing a compliant program and handling future hurdles, and talk about how to tailor policies that meet business needs.
