Outlook 2021: Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Regulatory Issues in Securities Litigation (Cassels Webinar)


 – Lara Jackson

On November 25, 2021, our Securities Litigation Group hosted a virtual discussion with Wendy Berman – Vice-Chair, Ontario Securities Commission – regarding current and anticipated ESG regulatory issues, including:

  • The Canadian Securities Administrators’ proposed instrument on climate-related disclosure and its impact on a fair and efficient transition to net zero;
  • What to expect from regulators to address the paradigm shift in the allocation of capital to sustainable investments and the increased potential for greenwashing; and
  • What’s next for driving broader diversity in capital markets.

Speakers included Lara Jackson and Anna Tombs alongside special guest Wendy Berman.
