On November 2, 2021, Crowell & Moring attorneys Judith Bussé, Ryan MacFarlane, Nicole Janigian Simonia and David Stepp will present a webinar to address the top 5 ESG challenges and opportunities for companies and international organizations.
Climate change is a global challenge that demands a global response. Global standards are vital in a number of areas to address the cross-border issues that many organizations face, from forced labor issues, global initiatives and disclosure requirements to greenwashing. Urgent issues include how plastic packaging and waste is regulated globally, how recent EU initiatives apply to businesses established outside the EU, x and x. Setting levels will need to go beyond what the environmental, social and governance (ESG) basics address and so-called “green” or sustainable investments that claim to pursue environmental goals will begin to come under scrutiny. more in-depth. Governments around the world are working on many voluntary standards, and a wave of new ESG regulations are calling for more comprehensive and detailed company information, including that ESG risks are being managed appropriately by third parties, such as supply chains and other business relationships.
This webinar will focus on best practices for businesses and global organizations to address these challenges as new Sustainable Development Treaties and Goals are continually being drafted, amended, and ever-evolving. We will address specific questions that businesses in a global context face as they start to think about the circular economy, unfair advertising, and more.
