ACC Greater Philadelphia’s 2021 In-House Counsel Conference
ESG — Everything Sounds Good, right?
Elizabeth Lange and Amy Seidel presented “ESG — Everything Sounds Good, right?” at ACC Greater Philadelphia’s In-House Counsel Conference.
Protecting the environment, ensuring workplace safety, supporting communities, good governance – what’s not to like? ESG sounds good, but it’s not so easy! Gathering data, reporting frameworks, public disclosure, shareholder proposals, SEC regulations and even litigation — all these things make tackling the “goodness” of ESG a little less attractive.
Amy, Elizabeth and in-house counsel discussed the events leading to the buzz around ESG, how companies decide where to prioritize their efforts and devote resources, and how to navigate the many considerations involved in corporate ESG programs.
