15.11.2022 Hybrid: Director Liabilities, balancing business & ESG

November 15, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This hybrid event (attend in-person or online) focuses on director liabilities associated to balancing business & ESG priorities.

This event is co-hosted by NEDonBoard and McGill & Partners.

ESG (Environmental, Societal and Governance) has become mainstream. Board directors are expected to consider ESG factors in decision-making. But they must also be mindful of the interplay between ESG factors and the discharge of their fiduciary duties.

Balancing business priorities with ESG pressures will be the topic of our November hybrid event, in collaboration with McGill and Partners.

We will be joined by Dr Ros Rivaz, portfolio non-executive director, to share examples and practices.
