The current approach to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) within firms (and regulators) is very much focused on ‘E’ with some consideration of ‘S’.

‘G’ comes a distant third; often overlooked with severe consequences. The reality is that Governance is the most crucial element of ESG, for it is at the senior levels of an organisation where the cultural tone is set and strategy – alongside business models – are developed.

In this FREE 60-minute webinar, Frank Brown, Senior Director of Financial Services Regulatory Consulting at Hogan Lovells, and Adrian Harvey, CEO of Elephants Don’t Forget, look at why the failings in ‘E’ and ‘S’ areas are – at their heart – flaws in Governance and Culture, offering practical guidance on how firms can strengthen Governance to achieve long-term success.

Key discussion topics include:

  • Why you need to lead your ESG efforts with a focus on Governance.
  • How robust Corporate Governance is the key to preventing regulatory and legal interventions.
  • The role compliance plays in delivering greater ESG risk resilience in the face of increasing disruption.
  • The importance of metrics, data and evidence to support strategic decision making and effective reporting.
  • How taking a sufficiently wide view of the social requirements can tie your ESG framework together.
