Webinar: ESG Disclosure and Due Diligence: Through the Lens of Equity Capital Markets Thumbnail Image

About the conference

AFME’s first sustainable finance webinar will explore the increasingly important topics of ESG Disclosure and Due Diligence and more specifically, what they mean for Equity Capital Markets. With the support of our co-hosts, Allen and Overy, we’ll be using their planned report as a foundation to discuss further implications, challenges and projections around these key areas of ESG.

Participants will be able to view the panel sessions live as well as submit questions and comments throughout the discussion in order to facilitate an interactive and engaging Q and A with the speakers.
