In Case You Missed It, the Law Department Management Network's February 2021 Legal Quick Hit was titled "How to Develop and Advance an Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) Program." You can view this quick checklist, developed by Seyfarth Shaw LLP, to get a brief snapshot into the program. 

The past five years have seen environmental, social and governance issues move increasingly center stage in the thinking of investors, boards of directors and senior management teams. As consumers, employees, regulators and other key audiences have demanded greater corporate focus on issues such as sustainability, diversity and accountability, so businesses with a rigorous approach to ESG have often outperformed the markets during significant periods of volatility.  Experts share how to develop an ESG program and manage telling a company’s story, while an in-house legal colleague shares his company’s ESG journey and discusses how European focus on sustainability and climate change may drive similar change in the U.S., especially under the Biden administration.
