Duncan Cotterill has contributed to a recently released Global Insurance Law Connect Risk Radar Report which focuses on Environment, Social and Governance (ESG).

The section explains that ESG has been at forefront of legal and business changes in New Zealand with key legislative changes having an impact on governance practices, along with recent extreme weather events.
