Event Overview

Program Content:Public and private companies alike face pressure from investors and other stakeholders for increased transparency and progress on ESG issues. The SEC has issued proposed rules on climate change disclosure and cybersecurity, with additional ESG-related proposed disclosures expected. In the near term, many companies are not waiting for regulation to implement ESG and climate-related programs and disclosures. In turn, directors and management have an important role in ensuring the disclosed information is balanced and not misleading.

Join us for this webcast in which our panel will provide an overview of the evolving disclosure landscape, and guests will discuss the actions their companies are taking from the C-Suite and director perspectives, providing a view of the impact on both public and private entities.
