Accelerating your business to a sustainable future
Embracing the sustainable transition is fundamental to your company and our planet. Using integrated, global processes and knowledge, we help you to transition to, and thrive in, a more sustainable future, identifying and overcoming challenges with you every step of the way.
ESG is increasingly important to your business – and to your shareholders, employees, regulators, customers, suppliers, and communities.
You need to keep up with the quickly changing ESG landscape. This can range from handling disclosure and reporting requirements and increasing ESG-related litigation, to accessing sustainable finance and investment, treating your people fairly, and protecting your data. We’ll help you achieve your goals, whether that means decarbonizing, diversifying your leadership, or engaging differently to address the needs of your employees and communities.
Our integrated legal and business services help you move from a culture of compliance to a culture of environmental performance. We will also work with you on new strategies and business models that are better for planet, people, and purpose.
We can support you at all stages of your sustainability transition. Early on, we can help you develop roadmaps and review reporting and disclosure regulations. Next, we can help you implement policies and ensure that transactional, supply chain, and human rights due diligence is conducted with an ESG lens.
