Geraint Webb QC part of panel speaking at Legal Business Magazine Commercial Litigation Summit
Geraint Webb Q.C. will be part of panel with Kirkland & Ellis and Aon speaking on “ESG & Vedanta Risk: Striking the Right Balance” at The Legal Business Commercial Litigation Summit on Wednesday 7th September 2022.
12.00pm ESG and Vedanta risk: striking the right balance
ESG and sustainability commitments, reflected in organisational policies and processes demonstrate a corporate actor’s corporate responsibility and sustainability credentials. Far from a marketing tag-line regulators, communities and stakeholders are increasingly seeking to find ways to litigate ESG matters, including in relation to crisis responses, ESG failures, greenwashing and misrepresentations about ESG performance and credentials. The panel discusses emerging ESG litigation risks and how corporate actors can try to strike the right balance between managing this risk and carrying out their activities.
