The sustainability implications for resources projects, highlighted in EP4 and other environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, are becoming increasingly important for companies to address.
As sole legal counsel to the Equator Principles Association for the review of the new version, we are uniquely positioned to provide insight on ESG and the new EP4 requirements in the areas of human rights, climate change and biodiversity and the practical impacts. We invite you to join us as our lawyers discuss the potential impact on resources projects and provide answers to your questions.
