Overview (Program Summary)
Recent economic, political, and climate turbulence—exacerbated by a global pandemic—has focused companies upon issues related to environmental, social, and governance structures.
This CLE will examine and explain how ESG factors concentrate on three areas:
• Environmental: A company’s performance on environmental and sustainability issues
• Social: How the company handles relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and the wider community, including diversity, equity, and fair trade practices
• Governance: How the company is led and handles, among other things, internal controls, cybersecurity, internal investigations, audits, diversity, and shareholder rights.
