Webinar – Climate change and governance teams: The latest trends

Presented by

Corporate Secretary & Diligent

About this talk

Far from dropping down the pecking order of ESG topics amid the pandemic, the climate crisis is taking on ever-greater prominence for investors and regulators. This is fueled in part by a new US administration and a growing sense of urgency in both the corporate and investing communities. Governance teams need to respond with effective engagement, disclosure and compliance efforts. Our panel of experts will examine the latest developments and provide practical insights on best practices. Topics for discussion will include: • What are we seeing in terms of climate-related shareholder proposals and voting so far this proxy season? • Given the SEC’s new review of companies’ climate change disclosures, what should general counsel bear in mind about the commission’s 2010 guidance and compliance? • How are investors’ expectations developing in regards to climate-related disclosures? • What role should governance teams play in developing and communicating the net-zero emissions plans their companies produce? • What potential liabilities do such forward-looking statements bring?
