Please join Kroll and guests for a webcast exploring developments in the ‘green rush’ to renewable energy. With unprecedented amounts of capital flooding the sector, how can businesses take advantage of new opportunities while identifying and managing reputational risks? Our experts will discuss a variety of scenarios and share their experiences to shed light on key considerations when entering the renewables market, whether via direct investment or by working with previously unknown operators and partners globally.
