Description

UK and EU regulators have increased their focus on environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG), including the impact ESG and climate-related risks have on financial institutions and what role should be for the financial sector in supporting sustainability. As this grows as one of the key drivers for decisions involving investment, risk and supply chains and the Financial Conduct Authority issues new regulatory guidelines on this matter, we take a look at how this will impact financial institutions and dispute resolution in the forthcoming future. What are the new ESG-related regulatory requirements for financial institutions? How does this impact disclosure and policy? How should you assess your exposure to these risks? What are the litigation risks and how to manage them?
