The webinar, sponsored by Butterfield, takes place on 11th June.
They will set out how climate change has evolved from a purely 'ethical' or 'environmental' issue to have mainstream recognition as a material financial risk across physical, economic transition and litigation dimensions.
Regulatory and investor expectations on climate risk assessment and disclosure are accelerating globally. This poses both risks and opportunities that must be understood, assessed and actioned by directors to fulfil their fiduciary duties.
Sarah and Ellie will bring an international perspective to the discussion on climate risk governance and liability, drawing together global developments in the understanding of climate change as a matter of directors' duties.
Fran Watson, Partner at Mourant, will discuss directors’ duties in the context of Guernsey’s company law.
Sally Rochester, the IoD Guernsey co-lead for Sustainability and the advisory lead for Deloitte in Guernsey will be outlining the steps directors should take, and the questions the board should be asking, to ensure they manage the risk and their liabilities appropriately.
A certificate of attendance will be available to all attendees who pre-book a ticket.
