No longer an incidental consideration when pursuing business strategy and engaging stakeholders, ESG has given rise to a variety of new ways to raise and invest capital, as well as new regulations, more rigorous disclosure obligations and new areas of litigation risk.

Please join us for an in-person luncheon seminar in Toronto on April 26, 2023, for a look at recent ESG developments affecting corporate issuers, financial institutions and pension fund investors in Canada, the United States, the European Union, and the United Kingdom. Alongside panelists from Canadian-based law firm Osler, some of the topics we’ll discuss include:

  • Global perspectives on products in the market:
    • Green, social and sustainability-linked bonds and loans
    • Overview of the public and private frameworks available
    • Structuring and documenting considerations including the rise of greenwashing risk
  • Canadian, US and EU ESG-related securities regulatory disclosure obligations affecting Canadian issuers and financial institutions:
    • Canadian Securities Law disclosure obligations
    • SEC’s proposed climate change rules
    • SEC’s proposed rules regarding naming of funds, indices, or products that have ESG/sustainability in the name
    • EU Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive and EU Green Bond Standard
