ESG Trends and Regulations – Webinar on Hot Topics 2023

Monday, 20 March 2023, 12:00 to 13:00

Swiss companies are confronted with a growing number of ESG regulations in Switzerland, but also in other jurisdictions in which they operate, most notably in the EU. These new ESG regulations increase compliance risks if not properly implemented.

Lenz & Staehelin partners Astrid Waser, Patrick Schärli and Dominique Müller will provide an overview on ESG-related compliance and reporting topics, environmental litigation risks and discuss the risks of non-compliance. Apart from legal compliance, the "transition to net zero" requires companies and investors to take action that go beyond the pure legal reporting requirements. Our guest speaker Mirjam Staub-Bisang, CEO of BlackRock, Switzerland will outline the investors' view.

Finally, ESG goals and related data collection may raise legal concerns, in particular under antitrust law. Our webinar will also touch upon these compliance risks.

We are happy to invite you to our webinar "ESG Trends and Regulations – Hot Topics 2023" which takes place on Monday, 20 March 2023, from 12:00 to 13:00.
