The 2019 Berkeley Sustainable Business and Investment Forum
Inaugurated in 2015, the Berkeley Sustainable Business & Investment Forum focuses on the evolving concepts of risk management, capital allocation, and sustainable business practices with a focus on long-term value creation. It is a large convening of key players from business, the investment community, academia, and NGOs. The event is a collaboration between Berkeley Law and the Berkeley Haas School of Business.
Suz Mac Cormac is a member of the panel discussing the fiduciary obligations of directors and officers to consider climate change in their oversight and strategic management. With respect to legal risk, this panel will analyze corporate law (primarily Delaware law) and discuss recent climate litigation in the U.S. They will then move from the “why” to the “how” and discuss practical ways that directors are incorporating climate change into their risk oversight function.
