Environment, Social and Governance

Our lawyers have the breadth and depth of experience needed to guide you through the changing policy and regulatory landscape

Changes to the commercial, legal and societal landscape have meant that organisations are faced with increasingly complex and interconnected challenges, risks and opportunities. There is a growing expectation that organisations embrace sustainability and recognise and address environmental, social and governance risks to ensure their resilience and long term viability.

Whether it be addressing stewardship requirements, climate risks, human rights issues or environmental performance, our ESG team has a robust understanding of the regulatory and policy drivers of the market and experience across a wide range of sectors and contexts. 

What does ESG mean to us?  
"ESG" in the broadest sense covers environmental, social and governance issues but consensus on details of the meaning can vary and public perceptions are changing rapidly. We take a holistic approach, covering a wide range of areas - from climate change and resource efficiency, human rights and community engagement, antibribery and corruption, transparency and disclosure, product governance, and risk management more generally.
