Please join Covington & Burling for an in-person briefing on Global ESG Legal and Policy Trends and Implications for Businesses in Africa
The global legal landscape regarding environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues is evolving rapidly. The landscape covers a broad range of topics -- from human rights and climate impact, to sustainability marketing claims and diversity and inclusion. Companies need to understand how the new world of ESG impacts their business operations and value chains.
In this session, two of Covington's leading ESG experts, Dan Feldman, Co-Chair of the ESG practice and former Chief of Staff and Counselor to Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry (2021-2022) and Hannah Edmonds-Camara, one of the founding members of Covington's Business and Human Rights (BHR) practice, will provide a primer for companies on key trends emerging from the U.S., EU and other global markets and their relevance for businesses in Africa.
Covington will discuss key legal and reputational risks and provide some practical pointers on preparing for and navigating the ESG storm.
