The pandemic has accelerated the conversation around ESG issues. We've seen high profile reporting and intense public scrutiny of corporate conduct, governance and investment behaviours.
Much has already been written about the trend to move away from a shareholder economy toward a more stakeholder economy. And, as the world economy recovers, to regard the COVID-19 crisis as a catalyst for change to “build back better”.
Proactive businesses are increasingly aware that a focus on ESG isn't just about compliance with regulations; being a responsible business makes them more desirable employers, more attractive to investors and more appealing to their customers.
We’ll help you, in a straightforward way, to create and execute a sustainable ESG strategy, reporting regime, regulatory compliance, and disputes and crisis management.
Our multi-disciplinary group includes lawyers from our corporate, energy, human rights and dispute resolution teams. We advise a wide range of clients on ESG issues, helping businesses manage their risks more effectively, ensuring compliance, and dealing with disputes when things go wrong.
