About this episode

In this special episode, Ashurst Global Sustainability Partner Anna-Marie Slot speaks with Ellie Reeves, Real Estate Partner and Will Chalk, Corporate Transactions Partner at Ashurst on the issue of climate risk and climate opportunity at the Board level.

The trio discuss the key issues Board members should be focused on and the importance of evaluating business models and strategies.

They also touch upon the value of engaging the whole organisation and making it a two-way dialogue, along with how businesses can create time horizons around target settings.

"I think stakeholders and particularly investors also want to understand the milestones a company is trying to hit along the way, i.e. a transition plan, and that's because as you know most climate related targets are based on time periods which extend well beyond traditional business planning cycles and certainly beyond the tenures of most Board members and so without those interim goals it is very difficult to assess progress meaningfully." says Ellie.
