Greenwashing, biodiversity and the just transition

Watch our panel of ESG experts as they discuss the key ESG themes we’re focusing on in 2023. They explore the multiple ways in which biodiversity loss presents risks for investors and what this means for global economic prosperity, examine the social implications of transitioning to a low-carbon economy and why a “just transition” is important, and touch on how regulators' expectations around ESG practices are evolving in Australia and globally to combat greenwashing.
