HOW TO: Consider Environmental, Social, and Governance for Heritage Organisations and Projects

Sustainability Special

with Russell Cooke Solicitors and London Historic Buildings Trust

This 45-minute session (inc. 15-minutes for Q&A) is led by Carla Whalen and Pippa Garland, Partners at Russell Cooke LLP, and Helen Shellabear, Special Advisor to LHBT.

‘ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. It’s a wide-ranging term, which covers the targets your organisation sets, and the actions it takes, to demonstrate your concern for wider societal impact. ESG includes everything from the environmental sustainability of your office to your equality, diversity and inclusion policies.

As the public demonstrates a greater awareness and concern about the environmental impact of organisations and their attitude towards social equality, charities may find that supporters, volunteers and donors are starting to look for ESG information when deciding what cause to support. ‘ Russell Cooke LLP
