ROUNDTABLE A: How can legal teams utilise their company’s ESG strategy to drive change?



ESG can be used as a tool for strategic decision-makers to bring about constructive and positive changes both for the business and the wider world. This roundtable offers an opportunity for senior lawyers to discuss the role that they play in furthering the businesses’ ESG strategy and to discuss what more can be practically achieved in the foreseeable future by learning from experience.

  • Does legal play an ethical role in driving ESG or are teams mere implementers of regulation and business strategies?
  • How can lawyers become advocates of sustainability with the board?
  • How can legal teams become internal and external ambassadors of ESG efforts, including ensuring dialogue with key stakeholders in a wider governance framework?
  • How can legal become a guardian of the business and ensure that the business is also walking the walk?
