REFLECTIONS ON THE ELEVATED IMPORTANCE OF ESG IN LAW
In this special episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, produced in partnership with Madison Marcus, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Madison Marcus partner and division leader of ESG and Banking & Finance, Eric Boone about the elevation of environmental, social and governance concerns as we move into a post-pandemic market.
Mr Boone details his vocational journey and how he became so personally and professionally invested in ESG work, particularly modern slavery, and his motivation for serving clients across the board in the best and most holistic ways possible.
He also outlines the intersection between ESG and other legal practice areas, the need to “fully leverage” such considerations across practices, the increased prominence of ESG following the age of coronavirus, how Australia’s corporate approaches to ESG compare to global counterparts and whether such organisations are being proactive or reactive about implementing their approaches.
Finally, Mr Boone details how organisations can stay ahead of the game with regard to ESG, what constitutes best practice moving forward, and how he sees practice groups such as his evolving in the future.
