ESG in Legal

Our ESG team helps navigate the fast evolving Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) agenda and increasing legal requirements.

Our approach

Soft law instruments are transforming into EU and national hard law and the number of worldwide recognized standards supporting the sustainability and ESG challenges and trends are increasing.

More than ever, human rights, climate change as well as diversity and inclusion are issues where companies need to exercise due diligence and they are required to be transparent and communicate about their efforts to prevent, mitigate and remediate negative impact.

Embedding sustainability and ESG in all aspects of business operations is critical and increasingly a license to operate. Governments, regulators, business partners, investors, consumers, and other stakeholders require a high level of ESG commitment and responsible business practices that will have a lasting positive impact on the environment, human rights and society in general.

Our approach is operational and business minded and our assistance is tailored to your business and specific industry.
