Human rights, ESG and arbitration at a crossroad

Driven by regulatory change, consumer and investor demand and a realization among institutions, boards, employees and other stakeholders of the importance of environmental, social and corporate governance (“ESG”) issues to sustainable growth, companies worldwide have increasingly had to navigate the emerging challenges and opportunities relating to these issues.

This is also true of compliance with human rights, where addressing and mitigating any potential adverse human rights impacts and associated legal risks is a priority for many corporations, including compliance with, for example, human rights, slavery and trafficking statutes.

What role can international arbitration play in addressing some of  the legal consequences deriving from these concerns? 

Hogan Lovells’ Paris International Arbitration team, led by Laurent Gouiffès and Thomas Kendra, partners, and Melissa Ordonez and Gauthier Vannieuwenhuyse, Counsel, invite you to discuss some of these issues over lunch and alongside key thought leaders and  practitioners, as part of Paris Arbitration Week 2022.

We’ll see you there.
