Mishcon Academy: Purpose Matters - Director's Liabilities - how to take responsibility in an age of growing accountability


Join our Mishcon Purpose session chaired by Alexander Rhodes, in conversation with Kevin Bourne, Managing Director and Head of Sustainable Finance at IHS Markit and Victoria Pigott, Partner in Mishcon Private.

Directors are ultimately responsible for managing businesses transition to sustainability.  In the context of rapidly expanding expectations and scope of corporate accountability, this is a challenging task.  Judgment, anticipation and proactive assessment of non-financial risk and opportunity are increasingly important.  Success depends not only on understanding the value of corporate purpose in driving value in the transition, but being aware of the liabilities and risks – for the business as well as its officers – that arise from the board's approach.  The speakers will talk about the changing rules and frameworks that directors and decision-makers need to be aware of, the merits of different approaches, and key upcoming developments.

The session forms part of our Purpose Matters Digital Academy series.
