Reasonably Prudent People & Climate Change Webinar: The Evolving Governance of Corporate Climate Risk
Join our climate governance experts to learn more about how progressive companies and their boards are managing the physical, liability and transition risks of climate change. It’s no longer just “nice” to have board competence on climate change, now every reasonably prudent director and manager should have a basic understanding of climate risks and opportunities. Tune in to learn about the latest thinking on corporate climate governance, including the recent legal opinion by Hansell, LLP, commissioned by the Canada Climate and Law Initiative: Putting Climate Change Risk on the Boardroom Table. Find out what best practices in climate governance looks like and how TCFD-aligned disclosure can help your company stay ahead of the issue, and the regulators.
