Environmental, Social & Governance

Business leaders face greater pressure to increase their organizations’ resilience while simultaneously addressing environmental and social issues of importance to stakeholders.

Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) is rapidly developing as a key set of international standards and metrics to appraise the investments.

Investors, banks and public procurement initiators increasingly evaluate companies based on their real commitments to sustainability, ethics, transparency, and accountability. Our practice helps organisations navigate the legal, business and political ramifications of developing and implementing ESG initiatives.

We advise on matters such as stakeholder engagement, corporate governance, crisis management, corporate social responsibility, sustainability, climate change, diversity and inclusion, ethics and compliance.

B2RLaw’s multi-disciplinary Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) lawyers advise clients across a number of industries and technologies to help them capitalize on the opportunities and mitigate the risks through ESG. Our team also comprises lawyers that have worked at high-level in-house positions at national and multinational companies, bringing an understanding of the challenges of ESG from an internal perspective.
