From Commitment to Action: Corporate ESG Strategies & The Future of Green Arbitration

An increasing number of companies commit to ESG principles to improve the sustainability of their operations, bolster their long-term financial performance and gain a competitive edge. 

Share this event with your colleagues and connections on social media.

At this event organized by the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations North America Committee during New York and Miami Arbitration Weeks, an interactive panel of corporate counsel and practitioners will discuss the business implications of these ESG principles, the disclosure requirements they comply with, and how the principles of the Campaign for Greener Arbitrations can be integrated in their sustainability programs, while also improving efficiency and cost-effectiveness in their arbitrations. The program will be held in-person simultaneously at Freshfields in New York and Reed Smith in Miami. The event will be followed by a networking reception at both locations.

This event is now sold out in New York. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please email:
