Demystifying ESG in Latin America – a guide for general counsel


After a year like no other, businesses and their general counsel are still trying to decipher what Covid-19 means for their operating models. The unprecedented human and economic costs of the pandemic mean plotting a sustainable recovery is almost certain to feature in their plans. Identify and mitigating risks across supply chains, establishing new corporate governance standards, and finding new ways to cope with emerging problems have all become essential skills in uncertain times.

In this webinar, we ask what the growing focus on environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) standards mean for GCs, and explore how getting to grips with sustainability is now a vital part of the senior counsel role.

Discussion points

  • ESG indicators as an indicator of the underlying sustainability of a company and its exposure to risk. 
  • How the pandemic has introduced radical changes in corporate governance.
  • How GCs can help guide their businesses through uncertain times.
  • The future regulatory and ESG pressures facing businesses.
  • Disclosure for ESG reporting, obligations and the investor perspective
  • What do good practices look like, and how do you achieve tangible results?
  • What technologies are needed to drive the transition and what sectors will see the biggest changes?
  • What corporations need to anticipate, measure and manage now
