We’re delighted to share with you Herbert Smith Freehills new digital report from exploring the key trends and pressure points as general counsel mobilise to help companies tackle the high-stakes environmental, social and governance (ESG) agenda. Drawing on 20 extensive interviews with legal chiefs at major companies across the world, they explore the increasingly central role GCs are playing in what is set to be the defining business transformation challenge of this decade.
Benchmarking varying attitudes, governance and tactics across a range of industries, the report breaks down the challenges of addressing the fast-moving ESG agenda into nine core themes and forecasts.
From the challenges of meeting investor demands, to policing high-risk global supply chains, to tackling the complexities of carbon reporting, our report assesses how some of the most seasoned and respected GCs are responding.
With investors, consumers, employees and nations all pressing companies to fulfil an expanding range of non-financial objectives, ESG will not only redefine business agendas for years, it promises to change the role of chief legal officers as much as the organisations around them. Packed with practical commentary from legal heads and our experts, Responsibility Incorporated charts the journey ahead.
