Webinar 26th January: ESG Due Diligence - Principles and Practical Experience

Due diligence is a precondition for the sustainable activities as defined by the EU Taxonomy and green financing under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, including green bonds.
Particular ESG due diligence requirements will be regulated by the forthcoming Sustainable Corporate Governance Directive. To help companies better understand its scope and to clarify its requirements, Frank Bold is hosting a webinar. It will feature international experts from companies such as Ericsson and outdoor clothing manufacturer Vaude. We invite you to join us on 26 January at 10 am CET.

The European Commission is planning to publish its Sustainable Corporate Governance proposal and submit it to Parliament and Council in February 2022. A key element of this proposal should be rules on sustainability due diligence, based on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and OECD standards. In the context of the EU's sustainable finance strategy, due diligence is one of the pre-conditions for the sustainable activities as defined by the EU Taxonomy Regulation and green financing under the SFDR, including green bonds. 
The proposal should clarify how companies should approach the identification and management of significant negative impacts on people and the planet related to their business model and value chains. Due diligence is a risk-oriented process. Its requirements are based on the company's position, its involvement in adverse impacts, and its ability to influence these impacts. 
During this webinar, we will explain due diligence standards and companies will share their experience with the practical implementation of the German legislation and of the UN and OECD standards , including how their meaningful implementation supports better business governance.
