Corporations are increasingly focused on ESG (environmental, social, and governance) factors in making business decisions and evaluating risk. In this program, Kaitlyn Maxwell and Jillian Kirn of Greenberg Traurig and Gregg Anderson of Crowe will help attorneys (both in-house and outside counsel) understand the key ESG factors that they should know when advising businesses, recent regulatory and litigation developments in this area, and what to expect from the SEC. They will also discuss best practices when integrating an ESG framework into a business's processes, and the associated ethical risks that may arise. 

Learning Objectives:

  2. Discuss recent regulatory developments and what to expect from the SEC

  3. Understand the importance of an effective ESG framework to avoid unanticipated risks

  4. Analyze the litigation risks by reviewing 2021 ESG litigation trends
