The climate crisis and the growing emphasis on social responsibility have resulted in a paradigm shift in corporate sustainability norms. In the past, most standards were voluntary and only pioneering companies would comply, but now they are normal stakeholder expectations that will most likely eventually be codified in law. As a result, financial performance is no longer the only metric companies are graded on – their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices also play a big role.
To help you navigate the legal challenges and opportunities presented by ESG initiatives, our cross-practice teams of experienced lawyers are ready to work with you to identify your company’s most significant focus areas. With our help, you will be better equipped to face potential new regulatory compliance and stakeholder demands. As ESG matters continue to gain importance, companies that prioritise sustainability will be better positioned to succeed in the long run.
