One Year Later: ESG in a Post Pandemic World
March 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Now over a year into the global pandemic, our “new normal” is no longer so novel. Even after sickening and killing millions and impacting billions, COVID-19 continues to rage. Throughout it all, businesses across industries have worked to adapt to these unprecedented circumstances — with sweeping implications for environmental, social, and governance (ESG). From supply chains to social impact, few aspects of corporate sustainability haven’t been rethought.
As we move into the second year of the pandemic, the rollout of several vaccines promises to curb the coronavirus, but businesses and governments increasingly are accepting that the pathogen may circulate for years, or even decades, leaving society to coexist with COVID-19 much as it does with other endemic diseases like flu, measles, and HIV. What does this mean for the future of business and ESG?
In this virtual panel discussion, leaders from transportation to fashion and technology will discuss the ESG challenges their businesses and industries have faced over the course of the pandemic so far, how they’ve responded, and what they foresee will be the most important issues as we move into the second year of the pandemic.
