Advancing ESG Initiatives with G2 Venture Partners

Ready to dive into the world of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives? In this exciting Cockpit Counsel episode, LinkSquares CLO Tim Parilla is joined by Jake Tauscher, partner at G2 Venture Partners, to explore the remarkable synergy between the legal function and ESG goals. 

ESG is more than a buzzword – at its core, it’s about assessing how you do business, and it's directly linked to your strategy and risk management. In-house legal teams like yours are poised to be a driving force behind bringing ESG initiatives to life by developing efficient governance structures, decision-making processes, and streamlining your company's structure.

This is because legal documents and contracts are the backbone of ESG. Since contracts reflect your commitment to social responsibility, you can leverage them to ensure compliance with changing regulations and internal standards. And by including environmental goals in your contracts with suppliers, your team can help reduce emissions, making a significant difference in your company’s carbon footprint.

What can you expect to learn from this episode? 

  • How to navigate ESG and set the right tone for success in your organization
  • Tips to integrate ESG practices into your agreements to reflect your commitment to social responsibility
  • Advice for legal leaders aiming to drive impactful change through ESG strategies

ESG isn’t just an add-on; it's a core strategy and risk management tool that enhances your supply chain, workplace environment, and relationships with stakeholders. As more businesses leverage their ESG position for a competitive edge, it’s best for in-house teams to put a solid strategy in place to drive that success. But don’t just take it from us – take it from Jake.
