Tackling ESG regulation across multiple jurisdictions – a conundrum for multinationals

ESG-related legislation and regulation are increasingly a focus for companies operating internationally.

Scanning the horizon for new developments and adapting their business practices accordingly will be key to ensuring compliance, especially in the face of diverse and ever-changing requirements.

They also discuss how corporates are having to contend with geopolitical developments, other hurdles such as shareholder and climate activism, and how adaptability will be key to navigating the intricate web of ESG risks.
