Sustainability is often referred to as ESG, an acronym that stands for Environment, Social and Governance. These three factors can be used to measure and tell the story of the sustainability and societal impact of a company. Today, managing a company’s legal considerations means thinking about these environmental, social and governance issues. Done right, this goes well beyond ticking boxes. It’s about making a difference - for your business and our world.
The regulatory framework is designed to drive change, but compliance is not the only driver for business transformation. An ever-growing number of investors and stakeholders expect companies to pursue sustainability, to address risks such as climate change and social injustice and to commit to transparency, sustainable real estate, diversity, inclusion and fair pay. Meeting this demand adds value to your business and helps ensure its long term resilience.
At the same time, standards and hard law regulations around ESG are expanding rapidly at local, national, EU and global levels. They range from (Non-)Financial and Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directives, over Green Taxes such as CBAM, upcoming Corporate Supply Chain Due Diligence directive, Anti-bribery and Corruption Laws, etc…
These continually evolving regulations – as well as society’s rising expectations around sustainability – result in increasing demands for sustainability-focused legal services. The legal aspect is key to meet sustainability goals and to create sustained outcomes that drive value and fuel growth, whilst strengthening our environment and societies. We guide our clients through this changing landscape both from a transformation and a compliance perspective.
