Date: November 9, 2021

Time: 1:30PM - 2:30PM (EST)

Companies and investors unanimously agree that ESG practices are integral to long-term business success. In fact, at least one-fifth of the world’s 2,000 largest public companies have committed to meeting net zero targets, while sustainable investment grew to more than $35 trillion by the start of 2020. But what are the risks involved in the widespread methods utilized today to indicate commitment? How can companies ensure long-term compliance and what regulatory changes are on the horizon for companies and investors? 
  
Join Tom Burton, Chair of the Mintz Energy & Sustainability Practice, Megan Gates, Chair of the Mintz Corporate Practice and Co-chair of the Mintz Securities & Capital Markets Practice, Dan Romito, Partner, Consulting – ESG Strategy & Integration at Pickering Energy Partners, and Sarah Borg-Olivier, Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President at Instar Asset Management for a discussion on the practical considerations surrounding ESG. 
  
Topics will include: 

  • The latest regulatory developments, including the SEC’s focus on greenwashing and updates on climate-related disclosures
  • The risks involved in target setting and what happens when a company fails to uphold its pledge
  • Considerations when disclosing KPIs and other metrics
  • Framework alignment and what investors are seeking
