Olajide Oyewole LLP (A member of DLA Piper Africa) is set to host a WEBINAR for African company directors to enlighten them on their evolving oversight role of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, as sustainability takes centre stage in the corporate affairs of businesses. 


This comes against the backdrop of the outcomes of COP26, as the environmental impact of businesses and countries is highlighted as world heads and business leaders address the challenges and embrace the opportunities surrounding ESG issues. Lawmakers, regulators, shareholders, and society at large are all waking up to the critical nature of environmental risks and opportunities and how they impact activities across business and economic ecosystems. Leading global companies are now actively making significant commitments to ESG targets and incorporating sustainability considerations into their business models and long-term strategies.  Institutional investors are also contributing to the pressure on companies to be sustainability leaders.
