Substantive Law

Overview (Program Summary)

Companies worldwide are seeing an increased focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters. This is driven by growing attention by governments, investors, financiers, customers, suppliers and the wider public on the manner in which corporates conduct their business. Profitability in and of itself is no longer enough.

This webinar hosted by Gilbert + Tobin will involve a broad panel discussion on ESG, and will provide tips for those in the legal function. It will explore a range of topics including:

  • the impact of climate change on business activity and the development and delivery of projects;
  • corporate governance implications, including directors’ duties, disclosure and reporting obligations, shareholder activism and stakeholder relations;
  • ESG drivers in mergers and acquisitions; and
  • ESG debt financing in the Australian market, including sustainability linked loans, green loans and social loans.
