Duane Morris: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Webinar Series

Duane Morris: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Webinar Series

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

2:00 – 3:00 PM EST

REGISTER

Among the nonfinancial criteria businesses must increasingly consider to stay relevant to their employees, customers and boards is ESG ‒ Environmental, Social and Governance. Beyond making smart business sense, ESG initiatives can help drive efficiency, increase engagement and involve constituents in critical ecological and social improvements. Increasingly, investors and money managers want to know that a company does more than just turn a profit; indeed, having a positive impact on the world at large is now often a metric used to gauge the long-term health and viability of a commercial enterprise. Investments in real estate and development are now being evaluated for ESG sustainability by and for players in capital markets. Join our panel of executives from companies at the forefront of the field for a discussion of the metrics and methods used to gauge success and guard against losing ground.

Her Majesty The Queen Toured Independence NHP

Last week, acting Consul-General, Hannah Young and a team from the British Consulate were in Philadelphia for a series of meetings and a special tour of Independence Hall. Their visit coincided with the anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen’s 1976 Philadelphia tour of Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, to commemorate America’s 200th birthday. 45 years ago, Her Majesty presented the US with the Bicentennial Bell, a gift on behalf of the UK. The US-UK relationship is deeply rooted in history, spanning economic, political and social ties between the two nations. Special thanks to Hannah and her team for visiting our region and strengthening UK interest throughout Greater Philadelphia. The BABCPHL looks forward to our partnership as we build upon and create new bonds.

Many might view purpose as a marketing tool that can add a dash of ‘good’ to brand messaging, but smart business leaders know that real purpose can not only supercharge growth but as well help to navigate tough times. Never has this been truer than over the last 18 months. When purpose is authentic and genuinely embedded across the business, the outcome can be remarkable.

Please join us for a session where senior marketers from purpose-driven businesses will share advice on how to embed and activate purpose across the entire enterprise.

Our panel coincides with the release of findings from the third annual survey on the relationship between CEOs and purpose undertaken by Brandpie. In this 2021 CEO Purpose Report, the consultancy gathered opinions from a broad range of 705 CEOs across the US, UK, France, Germany, India and China, with a representative sample drawn from big corporates to SMEs.

Wednesday, June 30, 2021

12:30 PM EST

REGISTER

In our virtual and information-driven world, data privacy and security have emerged as critical concerns for consumers, businesses and regulators. Our series explores the latest developments in this rapidly changing intersection of the law and technology to help companies navigate new and sweeping regulations in the United States and beyond, protect against increasingly sophisticated cybercrimes and safeguard valuable consumer information. Led by an interdisciplinary team of Duane Morris attorneys, the Data Privacy and Security Landscape Webinar Series offers an in-depth discussion and analysis of the key issues and practical strategies for meeting the challenges of our digital, global economy.

In cross-border litigation, different local and international privacy rules and regulations present obstacles to obtaining information and documents during discovery. Our seminar will discuss the current approach of U.S. and foreign courts to discovery obligations, cooperation agreements with foreign authorities and practical examples of the interplay between global laws and regulations.

Topics include:

  • Overview of the privacy laws and blocking statutes in foreign jurisdictions that have the potential to frustrate discovery in U.S. courts by preventing the transfer of personal information.
  • Practical steps to mitigate risks in discovery and facilitate cooperation from foreign courts and parties.
  • The impact of Schrems II and the adoption of the EU’s new Standard Contractual Clause.
  • How judicial authorities and government agencies might attempt to resolve these issues in the future.
  • The expanding use of U.S. tools such as Section 1782 to secure global discovery.
