Event Details

Webinar series

Global | June 21, 2022

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are important for global businesses as the legal and regulatory landscapes change and ESG expectations of investors, customers, employees and other stakeholders grow. Now more than ever, investors are incorporating ESG criteria into their investment assessments and perceive that companies with strong sustainability programs indicate reliable performance going forward. Climate change and sustainability dominate the current ESG focus and the financial sector is taking proactive steps to engage financial institutions in implementing strategies for supporting low-carbon economy and providing sustainable finance.

Recent regulations in the EU and developments in Turkey create a stronger need for Turkish businesses to learn and adapt ESG initiatives in an expedient manner.

In this webinar series, our team from Norton Rose Fulbright and Pekin Bayar Mizrahi share their extensive knowledge on different aspects of ESG.
