Over the past decade, Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) matters have become increasingly important to organizations. Strong sustainability practices have become a critical business imperative, offering enormous opportunities for those who take it seriously and posing serious liabilities for those who don’t.
In the context of disputes and enforcement, courts are beginning to recognize the gravity of environmental and climate change issues, while corporate accountability for compliance breaches arising from supply chains and business relationships are increasingly in the spotlight.
Baker McKenzie invites you to an interactive discussion featuring our panel of global and Middle East dispute resolution and compliance specialists. The virtual discussion will focus on:
- Climate change litigation including the unique risks and claims involved in global climate-related disputes;
- Compliance risks and increasing enforcement against supply chain breaches, human rights violations and environmental issues related to global business activities; and
- How companies in MENA can effectively manage ESG-related risks and disputes and reimagine a sustainable business.
