We organise free online events to share our legal analysis and resources on corporate and investment governance in the climate and nature crises. With insights from lawyers, directors, academics, investors and regulators, our events explore the key roles and responsibilities of directors and trustees to navigate their companies and funds through the disruptions of climate change and the global net zero transition. Our webinars are free and are recorded for those who missed them.
We collaborate with experts on invitation only roundtables and convenings to share knowledge and expertise and build capacity on climate and nature risk governance and disclosure.
Our experts regularly speak at webinars, conferences and convenings.
