Compliance’s Role in ESG

The last few years have seen global developments (Occupy Wall Street, #MeToo, Black Lives Matter and climate change activism) that have given rise to increased demands in accountability and transparency across virtually all sections of society. This demand for accountability and transparency extends to societal expectations on supply chain integrity involving environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues.

The panel will include:
