Learn about the European Directive 2014/95/EU on disclosure of non-financial and diversity information by certain large undertakings and groups. The Directive entered into force on 6 December 2014 and EU Member States have two years to transpose it into national legislation. For the first time, such companies will be required to disclosure in their management report information on policies, risks and outcomes relating to environmental matters, social and employee aspects, respect for human rights, anticorruption and bribery issues, and diversity in their board of directors (including information on the age, gender and educational and professional backgrounds of their members). This session will be divided into a short presentation giving an overview of the Directive, followed by a 'mock boardroom' to demonstrate the impact of the Directive at a company level. There will then be a short panel discussion of matters raised which will include an examination of the role of in-house counsel in driving diversity issues and the Corporate Social Responsibility agenda more generally.
