Corporate Sustainability: The Impact of ESG Matters on Disclosure Duties, Governance, Incentive Plans, and Litigation

Under Directive 2014/95/EU companies must periodically disclose certain non-financial information. This includes, inter alia, the companies’ targets for environmental sustainability. We analyzed the impact of these targets on the companies’ corporate governance and on management incentive plans; we also addressed the litigation risks that companies may face in relation to the disclosure of information concerning environmental sustainability. Filippo Bettini (Chief Sustainability & Risk Governance Officer at Pirelli) and Samir de Chadarevian (Advisor at GIST Initiatives Ltd) shared their experience and best practices on these matters.

The seminar is part of the Cleary Corporate Breakfast series and took place at the Milan and Rome offices.
