What this session will cover

In this session, the panel will explore the influence and role of ESG in dispute resolution. Does a corporate embracing ESG increase or decrease its disputes risks? Is ESG influencing the way in which corporates approach dispute resolution and the procedures available? What long term influence, if any, will the pandemic have to ESG in dispute resolution. Are dispute resolution practitioners doing enough to help corporates achieve their ESG ambitions?
