Future-proof investment: A legal guide to ESG and creating sustainable financial products

Environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) are factors that are rapidly escalating in the public consciousness. Climate litigation is forcing business to change.  International labour laws are developing to respond to trafficking and slavery issues. Consumers are asking more questions about the products they buy. “Impact investment” is a growing force amongst millennials.

We focus on 4 key issues in this bold new world of finance:

  1. What ESG and sustainable investment actually mean.
  2. Industry overview – who are the key players?
  3. Key legal and regulatory developments occurring, using Hong Kong, Europe and Mainland China as key case studies. 
  4. Practical tips for building an ESG strategy for your business.
