In Sidebar we look at the impact of the issues, innovations and trends facing the legal landscape. In season two we're looking at what ESG means for you.

Businesses are under pressure from consumers, the media and regulators to operate in an ethical fashion and make ESG a priority.

But their attempts to demonstrate progress can open them up to risk and lead to questions about their marketing, reporting, and corporate governance. How do they mitigate this risk, and what challenges on the horizon do they need to prepare for now?

In the fifth episode of our Spotlight on ESG season, Senior Associates Stephanie High and Emma Allen are joined by Tristan Yelland, a Forensic Investigations Director at Grant Thornton UK to discuss ESG disputes and investigations.

Topics covered include:

  • why businesses need to care about ESG disputes
  • key risk areas
  • the types of claims they could face in future
  • practical tips for how they can mitigate these risks.

Listen to Episode five above, or via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, Google Podcasts or Stitcher.
