Corporate purpose and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are dominating media headlines and featuring prominently on board agendas around the globe, as companies seek to understand and manage the ESG impacts of their businesses and value chains.

The guide is an early resource in providing a cross-jurisdictional view of the developing body of law regarding ESG.
