In 2017, Latham lawyers discussed how directors can use environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues to enhance companies’ value. Since then, ESG has become a mainstream concern across companies, industries, and markets throughout the world. More than ever, companies’ ability to manage ESG risks and take advantage of new market opportunities can help them drive value for their stakeholders.
