Wednesday, November 30, 2022

Session: 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM (IST)



Being ESG-ready: “ESG” or “Environmental, Social, and Governance” is one of the most rapidly expanding sustainable investing methods. Countries are moving steadily towards inculcating ESG into their regulatory framework by amending or enacting legislation to include ESG regulations that require strict corporate compliance. Investor interest has prompted corporations to embody major ESG problems into their due diligence processes. This has also led to the creation of various innovative tools/indexes for ESG reporting and assessment. Across most developed nations, socially screened financial products have established a thriving market. How can businesses align their practices to growing demands of sustainability? How can business become ESG-ready?

Climate-compliance: Since 2016, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has been listing climate change - including extreme weather events, failure of climate change adaptation and natural catastrophes - among the top 10 global risks for businesses. Due to climate change, businesses face risks and uncertainties in all realms – physical operations, availability of natural resources, change in markets and supply chain, regulatory changes, contractual rights and obligations, disputes, damage, insurance, and goodwill among others. New finance frameworks and emerging developments in climate change related technologies also add to business risks. How can businesses mitigate impact of climate change? How can they safeguard against business and reputational risks arising from climate change?

Join us as we discuss and attempt to assist businesses with being ESG-ready and climate-compliant.
