ESG: what listed entities need to know
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are a big topic in corporate life but have particular importance for listed entities, given the public nature of ESG disclosures, investor interest and the potential for regulatory and class action risk. John Hutchinson, Julian Hammond and Vanessa Murphy discuss the change in ESG emphasis from regulators, what to do if your company receives a notice about ESG-related issues, and why bluewashing is the next issue on the horizon.
