ESG is creating more scrutiny for companies, investors, and individuals, wherever they do business. Our firmwide series on ESG offers important conversations on the key litigation, business, regulatory, and other emerging issues impacting the markets today, and tomorrow.

The Highlights

Sustainability has become a strategic imperative for companies as they position themselves for the future. The environmental and social challenges the world faces today may be complex and challenging, but they are urgent. The stakes are getting higher and that isn’t expected to change any time soon.

In this video, our thought leaders discuss some of the top trends they are seeing across global markets and steps companies, investors, and individuals can take to put compliance and risk mitigation at the center of their business practices.

The Breadth of ESG risk

In today’s rapidly changing business and regulatory landscape, threats and risks emerge daily that could threaten an organization’s sustainability goals and expose them to prolonged risk. DLA Piper partners sat down for an in-depth look at global ESG legal issues, as well as the trends they see developing this year and into the future.

ESG and Financial Services

Financial institutions have been shifting priorities to ESG for the past several years. While financial institutions are increasingly integrating ESG factors into core processes, there’s still a gap between aspirations and risk-free operations. Partners Kristy Balsanek, Keara Gordon, Gwen Keyes Fleming, Matthew Goldberg, Isabelle Ord and Jeremy Sher discuss the wide range of challenges facing the world’s banking firms and how properly seizing ESG opportunities can create true business differentiators.
