The ESG movement has generated significant changes in the environmental, social and governance practices of many public companies and their investors. Yet the movement now faces rising resistance that could stall or reverse its achievements. Amid intensifying debate, it pays to take stock not only of the concept and meaning of ESG but of some transcendent principles sometimes lost in the discussion, particularly how the best boards and shareholders add value. Join William D. Cohan and Lawrence A. Cunningham as they assess the current state and future direction of ESG and corporate governance in a fireside chat moderated by Anna T. Pinedo.
This event will take place at Mayer Brown’s New York office with an option to join via Zoom.
