ACC Houston January Chapter Meeting
Integrating Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) in Corporate Practices: The Role of Counsel
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 | 12-1 pm | 1.00 hours CLE (TX)

CLICK HERE for presentation resource handout

Stakeholders at every level increasingly expect a company to demonstrate a strong commitment to ESG through its business practices. Responsibility for drafting and updating dynamic ESG-related policies, as well as overseeing implementation and compliance of mandatory disclosure and voluntary reporting is a small, but important, facet of the in-house counsel’s role. Counsel’s holistic perspective across an organization allows insight into legal risk associated with making, measuring, upholding and communicating ESG commitments. Involvement of the general counsel and staff is essential to manage corporate risk. This discussion will offer some principles for good ESG practices from a legal perspective.
