Debevoise & Plimpton LLP has partnered with BritishAmerican Business, the leading transatlantic trade association, in its new Corporate Citizenship & Sustainability Series.
The series is a bespoke program of roundtables and business briefings covering critical environmental, societal and governance (ESG) issues in business and private sector-led initiatives in support of COP26, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The series will lead discussions, connect business leaders to relevant policy makers and stakeholders, and create a guiding theme for the US-UK transatlantic corridor for many months to come.
The first event in the series on May 13, featuring Debevoise partner Patricia Volhard, will explore the 2021 ESG trends and their impact on strategy, financing and policies. To learn more, and to register for the first event, click here.
