Join the Canada Climate Law Initiative on Wednesday, February 9th from 9:00-10:00am PST for this webinar on a new guide by Dr Janis Sarra, Retail’s Route to Net-zero Emissions: The Canadian Retail Sector and Effective Climate Governance, provides an accessible summary of the legal duties of retail directors and officers in the transition to a net-zero economy. It offers examples of best practices in the retail sector, with a checklist of issues the board should be considering in its governance oversight and strategic planning. The retail sector is in a state of evolution well beyond climate change governance, and effective management of the transition will be integral to a reimagining of the retail sector, given regulatory changes and changing investor and consumer preferences. Join us for a lively discussion on effective climate governance.
