IoD Guernsey to hold sustainability webinar

Posted: 04/06/2021

The Institute of Directors' June webinar, which forms part of Guernsey's Sustainable Finance Week, will explore the topic of directors’ duties through the sustainability lens. 

The webinar – Sustainability and Climate Change: Understanding Directors’ Duties – is free to attend and takes place on 11 June between 8am and 9.15am.  
 
The session will be led by Sarah Barker, Partner and Head of Climate and Sustainability Risk Governance at Asia-Pacific law firm MinterEllison. 
 
She will be joined by Ellie Mulholland, Director of the Commonwealth Climate and Law Initiative and a Senior Associate in the climate risk governance team at MinterEllison. 
 
They will set out how climate change has evolved from a purely ethical or environmental issue to mainstream recognition as a material financial risk across physical, economic transition and litigation dimensions. 
  
Sarah and Ellie will bring an international perspective to the discussion on climate risk governance and liability, drawing together global developments in the understanding of climate change as a matter of directors' duties. 
 
In addition, Fran Watson, Partner at Mourant, will discuss directors’ duties in the context of Guernsey’s company law. 
 
And Sally Rochester, IoD Guernsey lead for Sustainability and advisory lead for Deloitte in Guernsey, will outline the steps directors should take, and the questions the board should be asking, to ensure they manage the risk and their liabilities appropriately.
