SustainabilityFocusEnvironmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria are increasingly coming to the fore in the minds of governments, investors and consumers. Governments are increasing regulation in areas such as gender, racial, and socio-economic diversity, corporate governance and anti-bribery and corruption regulation of companies. Businesses are making commitments to shareholders and the markets in which they operate in relation to their ESG credentials. Consumers are increasingly using their collective voice to drive change. The construction sector is particularly exposed to ESG considerations, particularly in relation to its sustainability credentials but also in other areas. This session will explore the impact of ESG in construction and infrastructure projects and the implications for financing, procurement strategies and delivery.

SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS sessions marked as such are part of the IBA Annual Conference 2022 sustainability focus on Tuesday and Thursday, grouping sessions discussing different aspects of ESG and sustainability across the different legal fields.
