esela VC21 THEMES
An agenda of inter-connected conversations
Law and lawyers play a fundamental part in building an economic ecosystem that works for all.
There is growing recognition among companies, investors and their advisors that, even in these unprecedented times, corporate and investment behaviour can support economic growth and social progress.
With the fresh challenges brought by the pandemic adding to climate and ecological crises, businesses face a changing world on multiple fronts. The advice they need is increasingly multi-faceted.
In response, lawyers are developing specialisms spanning impact investment, and ESG and sustainability lenses, alongside structuring purpose-led businesses. To give rounded advice on domestic and multi-national deals, lawyers now hold an understanding of business and human rights, of the movement to adapt standard terms to mitigate climate risks and of the mechanisms by which to build infrastructure for social and human development as well as economic development.
The esela Virtual Conference 2021 combined these essential conversations and topics under one agenda, drawing connections and examining the interdependence of these themes for lawyers, businesses, investors and policy makers.
