In response to social pressure as well as regulatory drivers, Environmental, Social and Governance issues are now mainstream for the business community. We recognise that a strong ESG proposition can lead to higher value creation, and many businesses are taking an increasingly proactive stance towards meeting sustainability goals. The Covid crisis has only fuelled that trend, highlighting the need to build greater resilience to systemic risks, including climate and societal change, into our business models.
The ESG agenda touches almost every aspect of a business and can have profound strategic and operational implications. The breadth of ESG considerations and the pace of change in public sentiment, market expectations and the regulatory landscape present an immense challenge as well as a wealth of opportunity. At the same time, the global ESG risk landscape is evolving rapidly, with novel ESG litigation and regulatory action emerging across a host of jurisdictions, including in relation to "greenwashing", business & human rights and climate change.
Our cross-disciplinary team of market-leading experts provides holistic advice on the full spectrum of ESG and sustainability issues, combining in-depth knowledge of ESG law, regulation and best practice with our understanding of your business.
