Tuesday, June 8 | Tax in a dynamic global sustainability landscape (1 pm ET)

The challenges around the ‘E’ in ESG

Environmental sustainability is increasingly the focus of policy discussions around the globe. Because Tax will play a critical role in the global solutions, tax professionals need to be aware of the issues and the options.

On this webcast, we will focus on tax considerations and opportunities in the global effort to make the environment a top policy priority. The tax department is a critical voice in the environmental, social, governance (ESG) conversation and should work hand-in-hand with sustainability, operations and the C-suite as businesses both proactively develop strategies to align with the “E” in the ESG framework and respond to legislative and policy developments across the globe.

The following topics will be discussed:

  • US and global policy developments and drivers
  • EU Green Deal
  • Net-zero commitments in Asia
  • Sustainability incentives and funding opportunities
  • Planning for tax impacts and changes to operating models
  • Tax compliance considerations

Date: Tuesday, 8 June 2021

Time: 1:00–2:00 p.m. EDT New York; 10:00–11:00 a.m. PDT Los Angeles
