LexCast: ESG – Just a Buzzword or a Word With Real Impact for Businesses in Switzerland?


Your contact

Environmental, social and corporate governance or short ESG is a term that can no longer be avoided. More and more stakeholders call on businesses to stop burying their heads in the sand regarding topics such as environment or social matters. This trend was also reflected concerning the vote on the Responsible Business Initiative.

Although the initiative was rejected, there was a government-backed counterproposal that will now enter into force in 2022 as a result of this rejection. This means that Swiss businesses will have to adhere to new reporting and due diligence duties.

If you want to find out if these new obligations also impact your business, tune in to our latest LexCast with Alexander Vogel, Peter Hiltner and Cornelia Mattig. They will discuss what the new rules in the Swiss Code of Obligation regarding ESG mean for Swiss companies and what effect this will have on them. Do you agree with the assessment of our speakers?
