Considerations of the Legal ESG Landscape for the American Bar Association

Presented by

Dana Hanby, Dr Todd Cort, Travis Miller

About this talk

Given the lack of clarity around the legal definition of ESG, the American Bar Association (ABA) reached out to elite practitioners and Yale University to define what ESG is and how companies should manage programs and disclosures. In our discussion, we will define, identify drivers, and dive into the business and legal considerations of ESG. We will focus on creating a defined guide that highlights the steps a business can take to meet emerging risks and the value of the implemented non-financial risk management programs. The content for the discussion is based on the research and findings from practitioners and Yale academics who have been engaged by the American Bar Association (ABA) to review the legal landscape of ESG. The program will highlight emerging laws and business trends and tie them to disclosure standards and actual business systems presented through practitioner experiences and cases. - we will explore how defining materiality for your organization is the key first step to ESG. - give the perspective on how the multi-layers of international ESG requirements will require careful planning and deployment. - forecast the future regulatory requirements that are emerging and will drive work over the course of the next several years. These and other topics will be discussed by our expert panellists. - Todd Cort, Yale Professor - Travis Miller, General Counsel Assent Inc. - Moderated by Dana Hanby, Managing Director ESG Nexus
