Setting the ESG Agenda
18 March 2021
14:00–17:00 hrs

The increasing focus on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) topics is rapidly changing the face of the leveraged finance markets. From end-investor requests to regulatory requirements, the need by credit investors to receive more ESG information from corporate borrowers has never been more urgent. In our first ESG Conference, the ELFA will be joined by our partner firms, panellists and speakers to discuss the ways in which ESG is transforming our markets and how market participants can effectively meet the challenges of this rapidly evolving trend.

We also provide educational resources through our Seminar Series and Academy, opportunities to progress important initiatives through our Committees, and a platform to express thought leadership through our Insights Series.

We distribute weekly summaries of legal and regulatory issues through our Briefings Series, and regularly update the resources provided under our Diligence Series to reflect current and emerging market issues and trends.
