Part 5 of a 9-part webinar series presented by the China Working Group of the IBA Asia Pacific Regional Forum and IBA Young Lawyers’ Committee

Many countries now require listed companies, for example, to account for their economic, environmental and social corporate governance (ESG) within their annual reports sent to their shareholders.

Indeed, companies legislation in certain jurisdictions now require directors of companies to take environmental and social considerations into account when acting in the best interests of the companies they steward.

In this webinar, our panellists will discuss the increasing pervasiveness of ESG norms in legal practice and why lawyers need to take this growing development practice seriously in their day-to-day practice.
